Dear Mr Gordon,
Please accept my enthusiastic application for your Auditor position which was advertised on the Dayjob.com website. I come to you equipped with a degree in Business Processes, and a proven track record in auditing, making me believe that I have all the attributes that you require from a candidate.
I have a comprehensive understanding of management systems and am intimately familiar with auditing procedures and practices. My strong business skills, coupled with my willingness and ability to learn new concepts and methods, makes me a formidable operator in any auditing project. In my present employment with ....................., I have achieved exceptional results when involved in auditing Limited companies, small organisations and large corporations.
I am responsible, honest, efficient and have a long history of getting things done whilst working under pressure and to deadlines. Possessing superb analytical skills, I am able to interrogate data to find out if there is any fraud, violation of laws or irregular management policies. Furthermore, I have comprehensive understanding of complex accounting methods, and experience within an Internal or External audit environment.
Being analytical and methodical when approaching problems, I am able to gather and analyse information that is diverse and unfamiliar. On a more personal level, I am a good team player who can easily interact with peers and counterparts whilst working independently or as part of a team. I also have well-developed verbal as well as written communication skills, and am able to present information, and compile reports of audit results to senior managers.
I would ideally like to meet you in person in order to discuss this position with you in more detail. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience if you feel that a interview would be to our mutual benefit.
