Dear …………,

A business is only as good as the people it employs, and without wishing to sound boastful I believe that I am the best candidate for your recently advertised Sales Manager vacancy.

I excel at lead generation, relationship building, and deal closing.

Your job advert specifically states that candidates should be able to quickly gain a thorough understanding of the products and services they sell, be masters at relationship building, and able to win clients, customers, and profits. I can do all of this by ensuring that resources are effectively deployed across the target area and based on marketing, organisational and customer priorities.

With me you will get a proven operator who has the excellent listening, negotiating, influencing, and closing skills needed to drive and execute your company’s sales delivery in the designated end market sector. That’s not all, I am also a superb administrator who can compile accurate and informative sales reports as needed.

In my current role I am responsible for the performance and development of 10 Account Managers. With them I have a reputation for ensuring that existing customers are treated with the same importance and priority as winning new customers. Through my career I have learnt how to ensure that professional sales processes are embedded into the culture of the organisation. Additionally, I have become an expert at making decisions around hiring and terminations to ensure only suitable people are taken on and kept.

I am a fair individual who will always adhere to policies and procedures relating to equality and diversity in the workplace and provision of services. I also have the high levels of energy, drive, enthusiasm, initiative and commitments needed to operate in a hectic and competitive environment.

Right now, I would like to join a company like yours that offers an attractive Salary, Commission Scheme dependant on experience and access to a Pension Scheme.

If required, I can provide you with excellent references from my current and previous employers. I hope that the information contained in this letter and the attached resume will assist my application and encourage you to invite me to an interview.

Yours sincerely,
