Dear Mr Wellman

I wish to apply for the position of Administrative Assistant as advertised in the Anytown Gazette and on www.thepersonaldevelopmentcafe.com website. Please find enclosed my CV for your consideration.

As you can see, for the past two years I have worked for Anytown Training Ltd. as a Junior Administrative Assistant. During this time I have successfully achieved my NVQ level 3 in Business Administration which entailed demonstrating my ability to carry out my duties effectively in the workplace. This incorporated office routines, use of machinery and computers.

I have excellent knowledge of all Microsoft Office Packages including Word, Access, Excel and PowerPoint. As a major part of my role was diary management, I am highly proficient in Microsoft Outlook. I strongly believe that given the opportunity I would make a positive addition to the team at Anytown NLP Practitioners as this role would utilise the skills I already possess and  allow me to gain further skills and experience.

If you require any more information I would be happy to provide it and can be contacted either by telephone on the numbers on my CV or by email abodi@hmail.com. I am available for interviews and hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
