Application for the Position of Payroll Clerk

Dear Head of Human Resources,

As a Payroll Clerk with 3 years of experience in the construction industry, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Payroll Clerk at BH Construction, where I oversee a weekly, multi-union, large volume payroll of 400+ employees. Mirroring your requirements, I:

  • Am the key internal point of contact for all payroll queries and issues across 3 sites
  • Maintain payroll information by collecting, calculating, and entering data into QuickBooks and SAP
  • Update payroll records (e.g. changes in exemptions, insurance coverage, savings deductions, job title//division transfers)
  • Reduced payroll operational expenses by 47% in 2019 by switching Excel-based payroll to QuickBooks

In addition to my experience, I hold a Bachelor of Accounting and am studying to be a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I am familiar with all the programs in your job description, including QuickBooks, Microsoft Excel, FreshBooks, and SAP.

I have loved every minute of my time at BH Construction. As the business was heavily affected by the recent global pandemic, the payroll function is being transferred to our head office in Chicago. I am now seeking a new 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,

Richard Bourke
