Please accept this letter and my resume attached as application for the position of personal assistant at Sharpfields Insurance, as advertised on SEEK on 10 June 2009.
I am a highly motivated and organised professional with four years experience as a PA and seven years experience in office administration.
In my current role as PA to the deputy director of the Intensive Care Unit at Prince Henry Hospital, I am accustomed to working in a high-pressure environment where accuracy and attention to detail are essential. I am responsible for coordinating the ICU doctors’ and nurses’ rosters, monitoring all of the deputy director’s ingoing and outgoing communications, and attending to all of her other administrative needs. This role requires a high degree of professionalism, maturity, loyalty, confidentiality and the ability to communicate effectively at all levels. I pride myself on my ability to deal with pressure and multi-task with a positive and flexible attitude.
A proactive team member who can also work independently, I always aim to go above and beyond my set duties to ensure the best systems are in place to allow the organisation to function as efficiently as possible.
I have enjoyed my work at the hospital enormously, but am now seeking to transfer my considerable skills and experience to the private sector. I would welcome the opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the Sharpfields Insurance team.
Thank you for considering my application, and I look forward to discussing my candidacy for the position with you further.
