Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Willis


Junior Broker

Dear Madam, dear Sirs,

I am writing with interest in the ‘Broker Support/Junior Reinsurance Broker – Munich Based’ which is listed on your company website. I am a master graduate in international management with extensive finance and business administration experience, and I would like to take this time to introduce myself and detail my qualifications for this position.

Since mid-2013, I have been employed as an accounting assistant in a Munich-based, international company. In addition to holding this position, I simultaneously completed my full-time master’s degree in International Management at the International Management School in Munich, with specialization in International Strategy & Business development. My university degrees and work experience have enabled me to gain sufficient theoretical knowledge and practical experience about finance and business administration, which would help me to quickly acquire knowledge of the reinsurance business.

My current job duties include the daily posts of business transactions into the accounting system, reconciliation of accounts payables including those of three subsidiaries, as well as duties for the accounts receivables management. Furthermore, I have received training in order to perform the month’s end balancing and closing, independently, for the principal company as well as three subsidiaries. The key aspects of this month’s end balancing involve the reporting of operating figures including KPI’s to the parent company. Furthermore, I am involved in the forecasting and budgeting processes for the principal company. Other regular duties include monthly analytical data reviews of lease contracts and intercompany reconciliations for the company’s finance department based in Ireland.

I hold a dual degree in International Business, a Masters degree in International Management and have gained extensive international work experience in Finance and Business Administration during my time as Finance Assistant in London and in Bogotá, Colombia, where I worked for over three years. My command over English, Spanish and German (my mother tongue) allow me to effectively communicate with culturally-diverse colleagues and clients with ease. Moreover, I have an analytical mind with incredible focus on detail such as revenue targets and budgets. I am also very flexible, am able to work under considerable pressure, thrive in diverse teams as well as autonomously, and have a strong willingness to learn and further develop my career path within the Willis Group.

Based on my experience, educational background and skillset, I can assure you that I would be dedicated to my contribution to your team and company’s success. I am looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience to arrange a personal interview. Many thanks for your time and consideration.

Yours sincerely,
