Accounts Assistant

In response to the recent advertised position on the Caribbean Jobs website for an Accounts Assistant, I would be very grateful if I am  considered me for this post . You will see from my enclosed CV that I match your requirements precisely, and am more than able to assist and provide administrative support to your team of accountants.

In your advert you mentioned the need for candidates to have a basic understanding of accountancy and book-keeping. I have this and much more. I also feel that my long years of experience as an accounts assistant at my present place of employment have helped me to built up all of those office skills needed to keep administrative processes running smoothly. As someone who is committed to lifelong learning I have gained comprehensive knowledge of areas such as; reconciling finance accounts, maintaining spreadsheets, as well as receiving and processing invoices, expense forms and requests for payment.

On a more personal level I am highly organised, possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, and can offer your company my unlimited passion and enthusiasm for this field.

I thank you in advance for taking the time to consider my application and I very much hope you will look upon it favourably.

Yours sincerely,
