Marian Lecocq

YR Group, Inc.
Los Angeles, CA, United States
Application for the Position of Finance Assistant

Dear Head of Human Resources,

As a Finance Assistant with 3 years of experience, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently a Finance Administrator at RED International, where I support accounting functions, manage payroll administration, and maintain financial records. Mirroring your requirements, I:

  • Handle accounts payable, including posting invoices, raising POs, processing payments and liaising with suppliers
  • Help maintain the integrity of the nominal ledger, undertaking analysis and reconciliation
  • Assist the bookings team to ensure all costs are accurately charged to clients
  • Single-handedly reduced outstanding payments from 75+ days/$100K+ to <15 days/$13K

In addition to my experience, I hold a Bachelor of Economics & Finance and am currently studying for the CIMA qualification. I possess excellent critical thinking, attention to detail, and problem-solving abilities, alongside strong multi-tasking and communication skills.

I have enjoyed my time immensely at RED. As I recently moved to a new apartment, I am seeking a stimulating opportunity closer to home.

Please find attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Marian Lecocq
