Dear Ms Graham,
I would like to formally apply for the Financial Controller position you advertised today on the Dayjob.com website.
I aim to understand your entire business and not just the ins and outs of its finance department.
What really sets me apart from other contenders for this job is my ability to leverage the strengths of the current finance team members to a very high standard. This combined with a deep understanding of complex accounting systems and how to use technology in the area of financial management, makes me an ideal candidate for your position.
I come to you as someone who can balance key technical, statistical and numerical abilities with my managerial responsibilities. Additionally, I’m from an academic background and possess extensive experience of finding key information in numbers and statistics.
At the moment I am employed by ……………… where I ensure that all financial systems are fit for purpose. As part of my duties, I work hand in hand with the CEO to spot any potential areas for improvement. I have been commended by my senior managers for handling confidential information with tact, discretion and in compliance with regulations. I would also like to mention my track record of representing the finance department during daily morning meetings.
Through my career I have learnt how to support individual departments to create and maintain their budgets. This is a trait that really helps when trying to keep costs down. After over 3 years of working in this field, I can undertake a broad spectrum of operational duties.
On a personal level I am passionate about the work I do and committed to a long-term future in this field.
Right now, I would like to work for a company like yours where I will have excellent long-term progression prospects as the business grows. To this end I have attached my most recent CV and very much hope that you will look favourably upon my application. I eagerly await to hear back from you.
