Dear Ms Parsons,
Re: Trainee Accountant (Ref: JK273)
I recently came across the Trainee Accountant vacancy on your website, and I was excited to find that my experience, qualifications and abilities are an exact match for this position.
As you can see from my attached CV, I am currently finishing off my degree in Accounting from the University of Liverpool. Over the summer, I have gained work experience in an accounting firm where I was fully trained in the use of accounting software and programs. My responsibilities included administrative duties, meeting with clients and discussing their financial and accounting needs, organising meetings and marketing the firm to businesses.
I demonstrated strong analytical and problem-solving skills as well as numeracy skills by meeting deadlines, advising clients on tax planning, maintaining accounting records, preparing accounts, and working as directed by my line manager. I was able to improve my communication and interpersonal skills by doing tax and account work for small and medium-sized enterprises and charities.
I am a hard-working individual who is proficient in IT and is always eager to learn something new and therefore I will be a big asset to your company. My love for numbers will always motivate me to do my best for your firm and your clients. Your company is known for its efficient working and maintaining excellent relationships with its customers. I would be thrilled to be one of the members of your team and contribute to the success of your company.
I would be very happy to discuss my application with you further and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I’m looking forward to meeting you!
