Dear HR Manager,

Trust this mail finds you well and safe.

Currently residing in Port Elizabeth, and am immediately available, because my employment contract ended.

A company’s path to success can be made smoother if the accounting is in order and effective. For the past 10 years, this fact has driven my career in accounting and finance. I have built a successful career around my aptitude for continuously creating organizational value across various fast-paced environments.

My ability to drive seamless operations, rapidly assessing and fulfilling requirements, makes me an ideal candidate. Whether bookkeeping, financial reporting, or human resource.

I studied part-time and completed my National Diploma in Certified Financial Accounting (NQF L6) through the Institute of Certified Bookkeeper (ICB). I gained vast experience daily in the financial and human resources field and am a member of SAIBA and ICBA.

I’m a highly motivated and results-driven finance manager who has over seven years of invaluable experience in leading and developing a successful finance team. Skilled in numerous financial and accounting fields, including preparing annual budgets, monitoring key accounts, credit control, and managing business books value between R1 million and R150 million in annual turnover.

Having the ability to handle complex assignments effectively and possessing the confidence to work as part of a team or independently.

I am presently looking for a suitable opportunity position with a forward-thinking company where I can excel, deliver and achieve my potential.

I’m a self-starter, believe in excellence, am hardworking, and have always dedicated myself, my talents, and my creative abilities to ensure any company goals’ successful accomplishments.

I bring a unique depth and diversity of talent by being proficient in using accounting software, processing documents, detailed budgeting to management reports, and assisting with capital expenditure projects.

This is only a fraction of the skills that I bring to each of my professional engagements. I’m always eager to learn in any industry and have a passion to grow in my field of expertise.

I am certain that my resume will provide you a greater understanding of my qualifications for this exciting opportunity.
