Dear Ms Scarlet,
Manager, Rubin Gorham Inc., London.

I have recently noticed your advertisement for the post of sales manager and wish to apply for the position.

I have completed my graduation from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia in 2014 and then migrated to the United Kingdom as a permanent resident to stay with my mother and enjoy the life in London. Having finished my graduation in marketing and finance, I immediately joined Lucas Inc., a large car manufacturing company in Australia. I worked as a marketing executive for two and a half years and then was promoted to be a senior marketing researcher. I quit the job to move to the UK in early 2017. I am now working as a sales lead for a manufacturing company in London. I am a self-motivated individual and love to make sales happen under my direct supervision. I manage a team of 8 members and take my responsibility religiously. I am quite positive that I would be a valuable asset to your company.

I, herein, enclose my CV which states my educational and professional details for your kind consideration. I would like to meet you in person to further my candidacy for the post.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Yours sincerely,
