Application for a Bilingual Secretary
Please find attached my up to date CV as I would like to apply for the position of Bilingual Secretary that you have had advertised in (where?).
I have had a great deal of experience in the role of administrator, pa and secretary and I am now seeking a role where I can combine the skills I have already gained with the language skills I have. I am proficient in French, Spanish and German. I have been speaking French and Spanish for (how long) and my German skills are of a Fair standard rather than good as French and Spanish.
My administration skills are excellent; I am a very organised person who has excellent time management skills. I am a great communicator and have had a lot of experience of communicating with all levels of personnel from employees to CEO’s of companies and I find communicating an easy role for me.
I can work effectively on my own initiative, I can come up with some new good ways of working and I also work well with a team.
I am very interested in the research that I have done on your company and feel that my skills are transferable to your environment and I am very keen to pursue my career with my foreign languages.
Should you have any interest in my skills, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
