If you are sending speculative emails to companies looking for potential new roles then you need to know how to lay out your email and be able to sell yourself to a company and provide them with the information they will need to consider employing you or at very least interviewing you when they are not actually recruiting.
To do this email well you will need to do your research carefully. You will need to look at the company website and look at what type of people work there, what roles they normally recruit for and how you fit into that ideal. Your email will need to tempt them to interview you with a view to creating a new role for you and that is not an easy task when so many businesses are making cut backs.
If you have all your information ready, please see the below example email as an introduction to a company.

Subject: Speculative Application for TYPE OF POSITION
Body of message:
Dear Name or Sir/Madam,
I would like to introduce myself as an experienced WHAT who is currently seeking a new fresh opportunity and I am very interested in your company and your vision for the future.
Brief explanation about your skills, what can you do that fits with the type of people who they normally employ? Do you have the same type of degree or qualifications that they would be interested in? Have you worked for a competitor or similar company that they would be keen to know about? This is the paragraph in which you need to sell your skills by summing them up in a brief synopsis of your career history.
Thank you for reading my email and CV. I appreciate that you are not currently recruiting but if you would be interested in my skills I would be happy to answer any questions that you may have and can attend a meeting with you at short notice.
I look forward to hearing from you.
