Subject: Application for [Position]

Dear Mr Baker,

I write in response to your job posting on [URL] under [‘Vacancies’] for the open position as [Financial Analyst] at [Company XYZ]. I was pleased when reading the job description because I believe that my financial expertise and passion for [Industry] can add value to your department. Therefore, I kindly ask you to consider this job application for the open job role at your office in London, UK.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [Maria Evans] and I have been working as a [Financial Analyst] for the past four years. In [magazine]’s latest article, [Name Surname] explains about [Company XYZ]’s effective use of technology to achieve goals. I strongly agree that companies can, with minimal expenses, increase brand awareness by embracing developments in technology. The prospect of working in such a progressive and vibrant working environment is what makes me want to apply for this job.

In my current role at [Organisation XYZ], I use analytical tools like SQL and Excel to analyse financial data and provide accurate and timely reporting. My highlights include, but are not limited to, restructuring 20 large-scale enterprises and turning it around after the global recession. In 2020, I slashed errors by 34% and raised 22% in revenue by finding new insights in existing financial data for a 10 multi million-pound concern. I am grateful about the career development and opportunities that [Organisation XY’] gave me, however, I seek a new challenge in an industry of my preference.

As of next month, I will be available for a 35-hour work week. I’d be thrilled to learn more about this job opening and demonstrate my familiarity with business and financial data. I have included my resume and references for your review. For additional information, you can contact me at [Phone number]. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Kind regards,

Maria Evans
