Cover Letter for Assistant Accountant

Dear Sirs

I should like to apply for the position of Assistant Accountant as advertised recently.

In my current position I work closely with management accountants in an IT organisation where I have responsibility for preparing financial statements and producing monthly management accounts.

I also help with budgeting, raising invoices, managing ledgers, processing expenses and preparing VAT returns.

Often, I am required to stay late to make sure that we complete accounts in line with mandatory reporting deadlines. I am very reliable and the increasing responsibility I was given in the company reflects the trust that management placed in me to always get the job done, on time and accurately.

I am now seeking a position in a larger organisation to enable me to progress eventually to a senior management position, while continuing to take my Accountancy qualifications. I am  qualified as an accounting technician with AAT qualifications and currently studying for further ACCA exams.

I enclose my CV and references are available on request.

I very much look forward to hearing from you as appropriate to enable me to discuss this position further with you.

Yours faithfully

Karen Parker
