Dear Ms Graham,
Please accept this letter as my formal application for your vacancy of Compliance Manager.
I possess a strong sense of urgency, rush to get a job done, but never cut corners. Furthermore I have a strong orientation for probing for less than apparent solutions to problems, and have the ability to translate regulatory requirements into practical considerations and solutions.
As my CV and references will indicate, I have previous experience of challenging, reviewing and testing key operational controls within a business to provide assurances to Senior Management that risks are mitigated and managed effectively.
My reputation is impeccable and I come to you as a highly skilled and motivated individual who can participate constructively on cross-functional and diverse teams. What really makes me stand out is the way I can give clear, practical advice on complex legislation.
For the last three years I have been employed by ……………….., in a role very similar to the one you are adverting for. I am primarily responsible for leading, designing and performing compliance monitoring activities.
Aside from my technical competencies I have a bias for action, a strong work ethic and an unbiased view of situations. I consider myself a disciplined and well organised individual who is willing and able to undertake all of the duties commensurate with the level of my position.
Right now I am looking for a fresh challenge and a position that offers the successful candidate the chance of future career progression within the business.
