Management Trainee

Dear Sir/Madam,
As a proactive and innovative recent graduate of Certified Public Accountant (K) currently pursuing a KASNEB certification in Certified Investment and Financial Analysts, I am writing to apply for the Management Trainee Programme in the organization. I am not only seeking an opportunity to enhance my competence in Accounting and Finance but also to promote the firm’s services and make a significant contribution towards achievement of its objectives and goals.
Through both work and internship, I have developed an excellent understanding of diverse areas encompassing accounting and finance such as accounts receivable, accounts payable, accounts reconciliation, tax compliance, budgeting, financial management, financial markets, financial forecasting and trend analysis among others which have given me a solid foundation in the tools, processes and methodologies involved in the successful performance of the duties assigned. Furthermore, through my previous work as an administrative assistant I gained experience in inventory control, petty cash management and maintaining confidentiality of highly sensitive documents and records.
In addition to being analytical and methodical when approaching accounting and financial problems, I am an excellent observer as I consider observation to be one of the best forms of training. On a more personal level, I am a result-oriented person with high integrity and a strong team player who can interact with colleagues whilst working independently or as part of the team. I also have well-developed planning, time management, organizing, communication, leadership, presentation, report writing and computer skills which will enable me to carry out my tasks professionally. I am confident that with my creativity, positive attitude and strong work ethic I will be a valuable addition to the team.
I have enclosed a resume along with this letter that expounds more on my qualifications and other achievements. I earnestly look forward to a chance to discuss my credentials with you in person. For more information, you can contact me through the above address. I am available immediately on contact.
Thank you for your consideration.
Yours Faithfully,
