I have always admired working in a company where my role would mean something to the world daily. Looking at the ambit of ContourGlobal; a company that develops, acquires and operates electric-power and district-heating plants across four continents with a focus on high growth and undeserved markets.

I am a recent graduate of the xxx. I majored in Accounting and Finance, and graduated in xxx. I am actively seeking for an enabling environment to nurture my skills and abilities. My interests varies from quantitative analysis to project management. As part of my education, I am pursuing a professional education in Project Management with PMI. I believe my academic background, business knowledge and professional education has provided me with the credentials needed to thrive as an analyst or trainee in any work environment.

Currently, I work as an analyst with xxx. The hands-on approach to delivering customised financial solutions to client’s needs has improved my knowledge in corporate finance. Working closely with directors on a $50 million equity transaction for an Independent Power Producer (“IPP”) has provided a keen insight into understanding the client’s full spectrum of requirements when assessing a strategic transaction.

I align closely with your ContourGlobal’s focus on providing innovative solutions to sovereigns and improving how the world is powered.
