Dear Ms Graham,
Your newly created position for a Financial Controller, which I saw today on the Dayjob.com website, would suit a driven professional like me who thrives in a fast-paced environment.
I can be the critical link that binds finance to the entire senior management team. With me you will get someone who not only make sures everything is running well and that there are no unpleasant surprises lurking in the figures. Furthermore, I will always have my eyes fixed firmly on making strategic decisions to help your company achieve its potential.
Your job advert states that candidates should be able to develop financial plans that support organizational strategy. I can do this for the long and short term.
In my current senior management role, I work alongside other leadership team members to create risk minimisation plans. As part of my duties, I assist the CFO in presenting reports to senior executives, stakeholders, and board members. This is something I have become an expert in, being able to present complex financial information clearly to non-financial people. My experiences to date have left me with superb analytical, numerical, and problem-solving skills and the ability to work to tight deadlines.
On a personal level I consider myself a sociable individual who has more than a touch of charisma about my persona. Furthermore, I am someone who is not trapped by dogmas, but instead willing to look at new ways of working.
Right now I am looking to secure a position with a company that is going through a period of growth and where I will play a key role in developing their strategy moving forward. The enclosed resume provides a more detailed description of my education, interests, and work experience. Please feel free to contact me if you see potential in my application.
