Dear Ms Nawzad
Re: Office Manager position
I wish to apply for the Office Manager position as advertised on seek.com recently and have attached my resume addressing the position requirements.
I am a self-motivated administration professional with exceptional interpersonal and organisational skills. I pride myself on my problem-solving abilities using initiative and persistence, and always maintain integrity and loyalty.
My office administration/management experience spans small and large companies in technology services, finance and publishing, and my day-to-day office duties for recent positions are similar to those in the advertised position.
My current employer, Cresswell Finance, is a small company of 10 employees and my role includes office administration and working across all business divisions. I manage all the financial transactions including paying suppliers, processing payroll using QuickBooks, preparing BAS statements and managing petty cash. My administration tasks include managing employees' entitlements, and I also work on marketing projects and oversee recruitment. In all positions I have held throughout my career, I have demonstrated strong communication and organisational skills, discretion and integrity.
I look forward to an opportunity to discuss my suitability for the position further at an interview.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
The sample office manager cover letter below illustrates how to professionally present your case briefly and powerfully. The letter starts by affirmation of interest in the vacant post and explains how it aptly fits in with the applicants career aspirations. This example cover letter for office managers is kept to four brief paragraphs. The mid section of the letter explains the job applicant's experience and qualifications within office management and goes on to highlight relevant skills that have been honed throughout the course of the applicant's progressive career in office administration.
In your letter, as in the example below, try to mention such skills as:
- Organizational skills
- Leadership and supervisory expertise
- Ability to direct teams to set targets
- Ability to lead proactively under pressure
- Knowledge of administrative systems and tools
- Ability to streamline administrative processes, increasing efficiency
The letter ends positively with the applicant's re-affirmation of interest for the job and eagerness at the prospect of becoming a member of the organisation. The applicant then goes on to remind the employer of areas in which his qualities will be hugely valuable.
