Dear Mr Todd

Re: Payroll/Accounts Officer Position, Ref: 314A

I am writing to apply for the position of Payroll/Accounts Officer, as advertised recently on

I am a highly organised and motivated professional with extensive experience in end-to-end payroll currently employed with Fresco, Victoria’s largest food retailer. In my present role, I process fortnightly and monthly payroll as well as superannuation, group certificates, reconciliations, timesheets and other accounting and administerial matters.

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 Certificate IV in Financial Services (Accounting) and am proficient in ADP Payforce National, SAP, Kronos and MYOB, as well as Microsoft applications. I also stay up-to-date with relevant employment, tax and superannuation legislation as this knowledge is integral to my job.

I am very much a team player and work well with others while also enjoying independent work and responsibility.

My goal is to continue learning and developing my expertise in my future role. I believe that I would be a perfect fit for Fast Freight and that this is a role in which I could both grow and play to my strengths.

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

Kind Regards
