Banking Officer Cover Letter Example

Dear Personnel Manger,

Please find enclosed my application form and CV for the post of Banking Officer under your current Graduate Scheme, as advertised in the (where you found vacancy) database.

In July 2013, I completed my final year at the (University) where I studied Accountancy and Mathematics. I have always had an interest in finance, and my degree helped to further this interest. The modules I took involved many aspects of the financial industry.

As part of my degree course, I completed a Research Project which involved analysing data within the finance industry. In order for me to interpret the results based on this data, I used the SPSS statistical package, and this has given me the confidence that I can rapidly learn new skills when required to do so. Overall, I have achieved 77% for this piece of work. I also completed other various modules of which will aid me within the job role. Full details of these can be found within my enclosed CV. 

I am able to evidence my qualifications and a full reference from my University. Please note that I am available for interview at any time, and look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Kind regards

Applicant Name

Good luck
