Application for Accounts Clerk
I would like to apply for the role of Accounts Clerk which you have advertised in (where) and (when)
and have enclosed my CV which shows my experiences in detail.
My background is one of a busy office administrator but a big part of my role in a small office environment was to be responsible for all the invoices going out of the business and coming into the business. I kept track of all invoices sent and when the payments are received. I also was responsible for issuing any petty cash and balancing this and also for any staff expenses which needed to be processed.
I have strong administration skills but I thoroughly enjoy working with numbers and have always been good at mathematical work and keen to progress my career within an accounts department.
I am a very organised person who works in a methodical way and likes to set up new systems so that especially from an invoicing perspective nothing gets forgotten or overlooked.
I have a confident nature and am an excellent communicator and I feel that I would be able to communicate well with both internal and external people with general queries through to chasing up payments.
Please find attached CV, should you have any questions; please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
I look forward to hearing from you.
