Cover Letter for Data Entry Clerk
Application for a Data Entry Clerk
I would like to apply for the position of Data Entry Clerk which I have seen advertised in (what publication and when).
I have previous experience of updating and maintaining records including computerised and manually. I have a good background in Maths and English and feel that I pay great attention to detail.
I enjoy making sure information is entered manually or electronically into a system correctly as required and then to be kept up to date if for example it is records on people with differing information etc.
I am a hard worker; I feel that I work quickly and concisely with little direction. I have excellent skills in all Microsoft Office packaged in particular Word and Excel and have good skills in spreadsheets.
As part of my roles, I have always dealt with enquiries from customers or clients and feel that I have excellent communication skills and the ability to explain information to customers carefully in a format that they will understand.
I am privy to a lot of confidential information and I understand the importance of keeping this information confidential at all times.
I have enclosed my CV for you to see my experiences in detail. I am available for interview at short notice should you be interested in my skills further.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application and I look forward to hearing from you.
