Dear Ms. Nakamura
I was very interested to see your advertisement for a Senior Management Accountant on the CareerCross website last week and I have enclosed my C.V. for your review.
I am currently seeking a position in the area of Financial or Management Accounting and ideally I am looking for a position in a company such as yours, where I can use the strong product knowledge I have gained with my present employers and further develop and enhance my skills. I am currently employed at the Tokyo branch office of Acme Insurance (one of the largest insurance companies in the US) as Manager, Financial Accounting and supervise a team of two people. My areas of responsibility include:
Preparation of monthly corporate reporting
Monthly statutory reporting
Monitoring of systems and processes, including developing spreadsheets/models to ensure 'best practice' methods adopted.
I speak Japanese to an upper intermediate level having studied the language as part of my degree course and I have lived here for the last two years. I am also a fully qualified CPA with experience of both US and Japanese GAAP.
I am interested in finding out more about the position currently available in your company and I am available for interview at your convenience. Please feel free to contact me at the above address or by email on [email protected]
I look forward to hearing from you shortly
