Re: Accounts Assistant Vacancy

Dear Sir/Madam

I aim to save your company money, rather than just record it.

Please find attached my CV in application for you position of Bookkeeper, which was recently advertised on the voice news paper.

I have been working as a Bookkeeper for the last two years at capital motors where I have been responsible for streamlining payroll processes, improving receivables turnover and creating a more effective system for issuing invoices. I have the skills and experience required to competently take on your role, and am very confident that I would exceed your expectations.

As you will note from my attached resume, I am someone who can juggle both financial and bookkeeping responsibilities along with general administration and customer service tasks. My core strengths include being able to accurately match invoices with purchase orders, quickly process invoices and prepare accurate financial data for senior managers. I have extensive experience of using software to manage company payrolls, accounts and financial statements, and am confident that I can make a positive contribution to your accounts department.

I am very eager to discuss my application with you in person, and would very much welcome the opportunity of an interview.

Yours faithfully
