Dear Dr Jameson,

Re: (Enter the Position / Ref here)

I apply in writing in relation to the above mentioned actuarial position which was brought to my attention by Jonathan Blake who works in your European Portfolio department.

As you can see from my CV, I have gained over ten years experience as an actuary within diverse environments. Presently, I am attached as Senior Actuary at ATK Holdings in London within the Life Assurance and Pensions department. My primary responsibility is to formulate policies and evaluate premiums using various methodologies, enabling organizations to provide adequate cover and retain profitable margins. Prior to this I ran my own private consultancy for five years, advising clients on viability and inherent risks associated with various forms of investments including funds, acquisitions, mergers and takeovers.

Before working as a consultant, I worked at the Government Actuary's Department. My main responsibility was providing sound and prudent advise for various governmental departments on issues concerning benefits, pensions and healthcare provisions.

In addition to my technical expertise, I provide a highly developed, analytical and creative approach to problem-solving. I believe I am suitable for the position in view of my diverse and extensive professional experience and track record advising stakeholders to achieve significant results.

Please find, enclosed, a copy of my Curriculum Vitae for your perusal. I look forward to your response at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,

Gillian Hargreaves
