Dear Sir/Madam,

I work on a number of different systems writing new code for databases, till systems, warehouse operating controls etc. I am always keen to learn new skills and like to keep on top of the developments within IT by whatever means I can.

I understand IT but I understand that other people do not and I feel that my communication skills are very good and that I can explain technical detail to non technical users. I am also able to do reports and present my findings and how I feel the best way of going about a new project is.

Please find enclosed my latest CV which details the experiences and qualifications that I have. If you would like to discuss this with me further please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
