Ms Jane Brown
101 Any Road

Mr John Smith
ABC Company
All Streets
Any Town


Dear Mr Smith

I saw your advertisement for the position of Financial Manager and would like to apply.  I enclose my CV for your consideration.

I have extensive experience of managing a finance department and ensuring that all financial management requirements, including annual accounts, management accounts, cash flow forecasts and payroll, are met.  I am CA qualified and regularly take the opportunity to update my professional knowledge and skills.

I am skilled in explaining financial terms to senior managers with no financial knowledge and have excellent communications, planning and problem solving skills.  I am a team player and I like to ensure that accurate budget preparation and financial management become goals across the organisation.

Your advertisement requested that candidates provide a note of their salary expectations.  I would like to emphasise that I am flexible where salary is concerned and consider it to be only one of a number of factors involved in submitting my application.  I would be happy to discuss salary at a later date, if you feel that I would I am a strong candidate.

I am available to attend for interview at your convenience.  Please feel free to contact me on (phone number) or at (e-mail address) if you need any additional information.

Thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely

Jane Brown

Or perhaps if you need to state figures you could try this:

Dear Mr Peters,

Please accept this letter as application for the Process Engineer position presently available with Battle Marine Ltd. My CV is also attached for your review and consideration.

I have 15 years experience in the field which has given me knowledge in various aspects of process engineering including: problem solving, troubleshooting, tooling set-up, performance improvement projects, and quality assurance. I am confident that my skills in these areas will prove to be an asset to Battle Marine’s manufacturing and operations division were I to be offered the opportunity.

As your advertisement asked for a salary expectation I would like to tender that my current salary requirement would range from £30,000 to £37,000, but this is very much negotiable. I believe remuneration to be one of a number of factors of job satisfaction and dependent upon structure, responsibility, and progression opportunity I would consider whatever you feel you might be able to offer.

I would be grateful to have the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, its plans and goals, and how I might contribute to its continued success. I look forward to a reply at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely

When replying to a job that asks about salary description, don't be afraid to be honest. If you feel like you need a certain salary to provide for you and your family, make sure you state that you need that salary as a minimum.

If you write that you're "happy with any salary" and then the salary is below what you'd be happy with, you'll be disappointed and will look a bit silly then taking the employer that you're not happy with that. You'll be contradicting yourself and it won't be impressive.
