Application for the role of Media Analyst
I have recently seen your advert in (where) on (when) for the role of Media Analyst and I would be very interested in applying for this role.
I have always had a very analytical nature and enjoy analysing information and figures and producing results and explaining this information to people in a non technical manner.
I have excellent skills in Excel and Spreadsheets which I find very useful for calculating figures. I have done some previous work in the Media industry and understand the ways of working and the kind of information that I will be required to analyse and provide feedback on.
I am an excellent communicator and able to liaise with a number of different people. I can give presentations and develop these from a technical content to non technical so that they can be understood by all.
I have a good standard of education, especially in Maths and English and have always done analysis work for various roles.
I have enclosed my CV for you to see my skill set and experience level. If you have any further questions about my skills, please do not hesitate to contact me.
In the meantime I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
