Dear Mr Jones,

RE: Accounts Clerk Position

I am writing to apply to the above mentioned position as advertised in Monster. I feel ideally suited to the role in view of my training and professional experience in career interest in accounts.

I have amassed over 8 years experience working as an Accounts Clerk with Honeywell Distillers in Lancashire, assisting the senior Financial Accountant. My duties involve balancing accounts, process invoices and update computerised records. I also prepare statements, staff wages and VAT returns. I also assist the accountants in preparation of final accounts, including balance sheets and profit and loss accounts. This position has given me the opportunity to work effectively within a team, honing my communication and interpersonal skills whilst increasing my ability to work accurately, even under pressure and time deadlines.

I am highly motivated, resourceful and resilient. I believe I am suitable for the position because I wish to utilise skills I have amassed and develop new ones for long-term aspirations within accounts. The skills and qualities that are evident from my CV are highly relevant to the role and my confidence, enthusiasm and commitment would be hugely valuable to ABC Plastics Ltd in a number of areas. Please find, enclosed, a copy of my Curriculum Vitae for your attention. I look forward to your response at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,

Allan Barton
