Dear Ms Bean

Re: Accounts Receivable Officer Position, Ref: 1947D

I am writing to apply for the position of Accounts Receivable Officer, as advertised on

I have over eight years of professional accounting experience, with specialisation in accounts receivable. I have experience in all aspects of accounts receivable, as well as general accounting knowledge and expertise. I also keep up-to-date with relevant tax and superannuation legislation.

Being an energetic person and quick learner, I thrive in busy and challenging environments. I work to tight deadlines and am renowned in my office for my accuracy and ability to resolve reconciliation discrepancies. I have made a number of recommendations to improve our existing system that have helped to make our processes smoother and more efficient.

I have a solid education in accounting, with a Bachelor of Accounting as well as a Certificate IV in Financial Services (Accounting). I am also adept in essential computer software, including MYOB, Excel, Word and Quickbooks.

In addition to my varied and extensive accounting experience, I pride myself on my strong work ethic and attention to detail – qualities which I demonstrated during my time at Effervescence Industries, where I was commended and rewarded for my diligence and discovery of misappropriated funds.

I am therefore keen to make a contribution and apply my skills, while building on my experience and learning and growing with the team.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Kind regards
