Dear Ms Graham,
I am taking this opportunity to apply for your Fundraiser position which I saw advertised yesterday on the Dayjob.com website.
I have a long and successful track record of implementing, coordinating and managing cost-effective fundraising activities and campaigns. I am confident that my fundraising abilities and in particular my skill at expanding the donor base will allow me to immediately affect your bottom line.
With my present employers, Johnsons Fundraising, my main duties include identifying, developing and having face to face meetings with new and prospective donors.
On a personal level I am quick-witted, can connect well with others and able to think on my feet. Being very competitive, energetic and goal orientated means that I am driven to succeed and able to overcome setbacks. I am a careful listener who is well informed about topics prior to discussing them, and am someone who always operates in a steady and persistent manner.
Right now I am also very keen to work for an established and reputable company like yours that offers a competitive base salary and discretionary bonuses based on performance.
I have attached my CV with this letter and would be very grateful if you could review it and then come back to me if you feel I may be a suitable candidate.
Tel: 00 44 121 638 0026
