Dear Mr Bloggs

Re: Executive Assistant, Ref JT4522

I wish to apply for the Executive Assistant position with Star Banking solutions advertised in The Age on 8 June 2008.

I have a Certificate III in Office Administration and have spent over nine years working as a personal assistant in high-end companies including Build It Funds Management and Igloo Human Resources. Overall, I have 12 years experience working in office administration.

In my current role as Personal Assistant to the Vice President at Build It Funds Management, I am required to manage a range of general administrative and specialised tasks in a timely and accurate manner. This includes organising meetings, distributing agendas, taking minutes at various management meetings and sending them to the relevant attendees. I have advanced Microsoft Office skills and have used these to help produce the company's annual report and prospectuses that are available on the company's website.

I can work autonomously as well as in a team environment. While providing quality assistance to the company's Vice President, I am also required to liaise with and assist 12 other staff members. This requires not only excellent time management skills but also a professional manner and an ability to communicate effectively.

I am confident and friendly and believe that my experience and skills will be an asset to Star Banking Solutions. Thank you for taking the time to consider my application. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting with you and discussing my candidacy for the position.

Yours sincerely
