Dear Mr Carpenter,

Re: 288/001: Graduate Trainee – Audit

I would like to apply for the graduate trainee – audit programme, currently advertised on I enclose my CV for your consideration.

I first became interested in audit during my first year of university, when I attended a presentation by Carpenter & Co. Audit appeals to my long standing interests in business and mathematics, and I feel is a function that would allow me to see projects through from start to finish, working relatively autonomously.

I am particularly attracted to working at Carpenters & Co. because of the firm‘s excellent reputation, focus on client value, and the opportunity to train for the CIMA qualification, which will help me develop my skills and career. I met with current graduate trainees at the Carpenter & Co. September open day and was impressed by the friendliness of employees and very positive descriptions of working life, at the firm.

I come from an advanced academic and analytical background having completed a degree in finance and mathematics at the University of Manchester and believe I am well qualified to add value to the audit team at Carpenters & Co. I have extensive experience working as an accounts clerk at Partners Plc, speak several foreign languages and have advanced workplace skills in management, people development and presenting. Having completed a degree and taken a gap year, I feel I am now ready to take up the challenge of full employment.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I am available for interview from 31st May onwards, and look forward to taking the opportunity to talk with you further about my application.

Yours sincerely,

Terry Smith
