Attn. Ms J. Smith
Dear Ms Smith,
I write to express my interest in fulfilling the role of [job wanted] for your organisation. I have about 10 years experience as [current job] with a range of companies.
Immediately after completing my education [name of training] in [year], I started work with [employer 1]. I am currently working for [current employer]. My current responsibilities include [summary of tasks].
Your organisation's objectives interest me a great deal. As [job wanted] with your company, I believe I can also utilise my skills to [interesting new tasks that are not included within current role]. This versatility appeals to me and, furthermore, the role of [job wanted] would give me the opportunity to further my career. The latter is, unfortunately, not possible with my current employer as a result of the age range within my department.
I would be delighted to clarify my motivation further in a personal meeting. Should you not have any current vacancies, could I kindly ask you to retain my letter for any opportunities in the future.
