Dear Mrs Smith
Application for temporary cover within ABC Company
I read your advertisement for the post of Temporary Administrator on XYZ website and feel that I would be ideally suited to the role. I therefore enclose my CV for your consideration.
I have a good level of general office experience and have spent the last couple of years providing temporary cover in a number of offices. This has provided me with excellent skills in a variety of procedures, systems and IT software, including Microsoft Office and Sage. My experience also demonstrates my ability to learn quickly, which is important in a temporary post.
I have good communication and organisational skills and am able to adjust quickly in a team environment. I enjoy dealing with lots of different people and the variety of challenges that can arise from day to day.
I am available to start immediately and would be delighted to attend for interview. Please feel free to contact me on (phone number) or at (e-mail address) at any time.
I look forward to hearing from you.
