HR & Finance Manager
Dear Ms Tore
Re: Management Accountant position
I am writing to apply for the position of Management Accountant, as advertised on CareersThatCount.com.
With over 11 years of professional accounting experience, I have developed a high level of proficiency in all aspects of management accounting, as well as general accounting knowledge and expertise. I have hands-on knowledge and experience in budgeting, forecasting, variance analysis, financial reporting, project management, performance management, financial accounting and product/divisional profitability analysis.
As Senior Management Accountant at A Countable Agency, I control and manage all financial accounting activities of the company. I am responsible for ensuring stakeholders are aware of their financial position on an ongoing basis and have all the information necessary to make meaningful financial decisions. In this position I lead the development and implementation of budgets and key financial decisions, and make recommendations for more effective management strategies. This experience has been invaluable in allowing me to develop my financial and accounting expertise, as well as my management skills.
I pride myself on my highly developed communication skills and ability to build effective relationships across the business. I have a strong ability to lead teams as well as highly developed skills in detailed analysis and problem-solving, and I am keen to make the most of these abilities in the Management Accountant role.
I have a solid education in finance and accounting with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Bachelor of Accounting, and I have also completed extensive professional development through courses and master classes run by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). I am also a Fellow Member (FCPA) of CPA Australia.
In addition to my accounting and management abilities, I possess excellent technical skills and am proficient in essential computer software, including SAP, MS Dynamics Nav, Hyperion Reporting, Accpac, MYOB, Outlook, Excel, Word and PowerPoint.
I believe I would be a great fit for this role and could make a valuable contribution to your organisation. My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
