Application for the role of Financial Accountant
I would like to apply for the role of Financial Accountant that you have got advertised in (which publication and when).
I studied (what at university or college, when and what grade if possible) and then I completed my ACCA Accountancy qualifications in (what year) and to date I have been working amongst clients providing support and advice to them on a financial basis.
I am a very methodical person who enjoys working with numbers and calculating finances for a business and hopefully providing them with good news at year end time.
I am organised and thorough, I pay great attention to detail and I like to work in a very organised and structured manner. I am keen to continue learning and would be pleased to do further accountancy qualifications as applicable to my role.
I have enclosed my CV for your consideration. Should you be interested in my skills and experience and have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer anything I can do regarding my skills and experiences.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV, I look forward to hearing from you.
