Dear Ms Graham,
I noticed your advertisement on the Dayjob.com website for a Fundraiser, and think I would make an excellent candidate for it. I firmly believe that I have the right mix of skills and experience needed to make an immediate and lasting impression on your operations.
I am an expert at putting together creative proposals to entice decision makers, and have extensive experience of securing sponsorship via email, telephone, face to face meetings and group presentations. Aside from this I also possess a deep understanding of financial matters and how fundraising works alongside other departments.
At the moment I am working for a well-known international charity in a role that is very similar to the one you are trying to fill. The job is mostly office based but also requires me to occasionally travel around the country to events and meetings. I am tasked with providing a high level of donor care to key accounts and without wishing to sound boastful would like to say that I have excelled in my duties. My other tasks involve me in submitting trust and statutory funding applications to grant making bodies and local authorities.
On a personal level I am a driven individual who is strongly motivated by financial income targets.
In closing I would like to stress how keen I am to schedule an interview with you at your convenience. To this end I have attached my most recent CV to this letter and would be grateful if you took some time to review it.
