Dear Ms Graham,
If you are seeking a successful, dynamic and proven editor to be the face of your publication and lead its editorial team, then I am your man.
I recently saw your advertisement on the Dayjob.com website for an Editor, and am very interested in applying for this position as it precisely matches my abilities and experience. As a seasoned Editor who has over three year’s experience of working for a quality Newspaper, I feel that I am more than able to lead your team of talented journalists, covering local, national and international news.
I come to you with a strong background in publication, both in print and its digital platform, along with experience of managing new, digital and social media. Amongst my other achievements is having consistently implemented best-in-class marketing strategies to increase advertising revenues for my present employer. Built into my leadership background is the ability to influence and negotiate within a complex corporate structure.
I am an expert at managing staff, delegating work effectively and maintaining an online presence on social-network sites. On a more practical level I can successfully correct errors and inconsistencies in grammar, syntax, capitalization, style, punctuation, abbreviations, font size, styles and spacing. In addition I possess superb editing, proofreading, writing, evaluating and decision-making skills.
Right now I am interested in expanding my professional horizons by working for a company like yours that values hard work, effort and loyalty.
I have attached my CV for your review and would very much welcome a personal meeting with you to discuss your needs and my ability to meet them. My schedule is flexible and I am available for interview during the day, evening and at the weekend.
