Dear Mr Gordon,
Further to your advertisement on the Dayjob.com website, I would like to apply for your Finance Manager vacancy.
As a ACCA qualified professional who is up to date with current accountancy practices, I feel that I have all the relevant working experience and academic qualifications that you are looking for in a candidate.
My extensive experience of finance and management is well documented in the attached CV. In it you will see that I can actively lead, provide and participate in the financial and operational direction of a company so that it reaches its growth targets profitably. All of this is on top of my ability to manage and supervise cross functional teams of finance advisors and interns.
I possess a pro-active management style, a ‘can do’ attitude towards seemingly unsolvable problems, and am comfortable with being the ‘go to’ financial person in a company.
In my current position I am responsible for producing accounts, cash flow, analysis, financial strategy and reporting back to management on the company’s finance. Over the past 12 months I have saved my employers over £200,000 by streamlining financial processes. On top of this I possess strong IT and Microsoft Office skills, and have the required communication skills needed to build long lasting relationships with peers.
I hope you will give me the opportunity to discuss my application with you in more detail as I am very excited at the possibility of working for your company.

Dear Ms Ledger
Re: Corporate Finance Manager position
I am writing to apply for the position of Corporate Finance Manager, as advertised on CareersThatCount.com.
My extensive corporate finance experience has been well developed over the past 16 years in a career which has spanned a wide range of companies. I am currently the Finance Manager for the Australian division of Zefside Incorporated, a global mid-sized manufacturing company. This role requires me to prepare, analyse, verify and disseminate critical monthly and yearly financial reports, coupled with budgeting and forecasting responsibilities.
In my current and previous positions I have been involved in preparing the documentation for legislative and statutory returns, including income tax, FBT and BAS returns. I maintain the general ledger at Zefside Inc and am relied upon to convey essential financial data to all levels of management and external stakeholders, including advice on auditing processes and insurance coverage. I also have experience with mergers and acquisitions accounting.
A key skill I have acquired during my previous roles is the ability to successfully implement and manage new accounting systems and procedures. I enjoy the challenge of integrating a new system and working with the wider accounting team to ensure a smooth and productive workflow. I have a proactive management style with highly developed communication skills. I have frequently been required to manage a team under pressure and enable them to meet strict deadlines.
I am diligent in maintaining and updating my accounting and computing skills and last year undertook an applied tax course, in addition to a Diploma of Quality Auditing in 2010. I am very proficient with the essential computing programs such as Microsoft Excel, SAP, Oracle and Hyperion. I am also fully qualified as a Chartered Accountant, with ICA membership.
I will bring to your company not only my years of expert experience but also my personal drive for results and positive outcomes. I am prepared for the next challenge in my career and look forward to hearing from you.
