To Whom It May Concern:
I am a BSc (Hons) Accounting and finance graduate from Anglia Ruskin Cambridge. I am seeking an opportunity that will enable me to learn on the job and gain work and office experience, as well as the chance to develop my skill set and learn new skills.
Whilst at university I found that I gained the most enjoyment out of modules that focused on business, economics and finance. My business financing assignment contained elements of all three. I had to create a report on how an exporting business could manage its exchange rate risk. This involved researching what causes exchange rates to change using relevant accepted theories as well as relevant hedging strategies and exchange rates. This was done to choose which hedging strategy would be most advantageous to the business.
In 2013 I worked at FBN Bank UK in London for a month. There I worked in the research department learning and participating in how to gather information from annual reports regarding other banks, analysing the data and inputting it into a spreadsheet bank poster guide. I also contributed to information gathered about the current state of the power sector in Nigeria by researching and analysing relevant sources.
Through the customer facing jobs I’ve had I believe I’ve developed stronger communication and organisation skills through the responsibilities handed to me, such as stock management and dealing with customer queries. I believe this shows I can be organised with tasks handed to me.
I have played university football team and played for Ely City FC reserves outside of university. I believe this shows that I can work as part of a team as I know that a team working together and not as individuals work best towards a common goal, however this does not hinder my ability to work as an individual as I am comfortable and capable working independently.
Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
