Dear Ms Graham,
I have learned from several colleagues that your company is looking to recruit a new CEO. In line with this, I would like to put myself forward and present my credentials for your consideration.
Right now I feel that I am at a stage in my career, and professionally ready, to not only take on a vitally important role such as yours, but also make a resounding success of it. I have a capacity for leadership through vision, communication, inspiration, and action that is second to none. In addition to this I am a passionate, driven, enthusiastic and hungry to succeed CEO, who comes to you with a sack full of ideas.
In my present role, which is very similar to the one you are advertising, I am intimately involved in reporting to and working with the Board of Directors as well as the President of the company. My work requires me to develop and lead a diverse international executive team. I am responsible for fundraising, operational excellence, brand building and preparing detailed operating and financial reports in support of institutional and strategic issues.
As a true professional I have no problem making and implementing difficult or unpopular decisions that are for the good of the company. Furthermore, I possess superb interpersonal skills and have the capacity to communicate effectively with policy makers, the media, donors and stakeholders in an influential and compelling manner.
It has long been my ambition to work for your company, particularly because of its reputation for being one of the largest and most influential operators in its field.
My aim right now is to arrange an interview with you at your convenience, where we will be able to discuss my application in more detail.
I would like to end by thanking you in advance for taking the time to review my application.
