Application for the Position of Accountant

Dear Head of Human Resources,

As an Accountant with 3 years of experience in large corporations, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Financial Accountant at FT Group, Inc., where I direct management and financial reporting for 6 group entities with a combined annual turnover of $83m. Mirroring your requirements, I:

  • Support the preparation of periodic financial and management accounts for each entity
  • Liaise with audit teams and other advisors to ensure full adherence to all statutory obligations
  • Lead enterprise-wide initiatives and assist with special projects (tax projects, system upgrades, M&As)

In addition to my professional experience, I hold a Bachelor of Finance (Accounting) and am a Chartered Financial Accountant (CFA). I am familiar with all required software including QuickBooks, GnuCash, and Sage. I have a strong work ethic, excellent interpersonal skills, and proven willingness to take ownership for wide-ranging responsibilities.

I have loved every minute of my time at FT Group. As they are relocating their head office to Aberdeen, I am now 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,

Gustave Baschet
