Dear Ms Graham,
Your recently advertised role for a Finance Analyst is attractive to someone like me who has a track record of determining where operational savings can be achieved.
I am an expert at driving top-line margin growth through a company by analysing operational cost savings and accurately interrogating financial data.
As of March last year I have been employed by Southern Services in a role that is very similar to the one you are trying to fill. My day to day activities involve me in calculating the price elasticity of categories, providing analysis of historical data, analysing P&L figures on a weekly basis and identifying key systemic issues.
Aside from all of the above, I possess superb communication skills that allow me to influence at all levels and across a wide range of both financial and non-financial stakeholders. In addition to this, I have the organisational skills and ability needed to prioritise in order to manage under time pressure and the personality required to build cross-border relationships. During my time with the company I have been actively involved in and contributed to many Financial Management department projects.
I would also like to point out that I have a very punchy, confident and driven personality that helps me to quickly bond with people.
At this precise stage of my career I am interested in joining a reputable company like yours that promotes inclusiveness and always employs the best professionals for the job.
If you require any further information, please get in touch. In any event, I look forward to hearing from you as the recruitment process progresses.
