Dear Sir/Madam

I am currently the Accountant at Guardian Group Trust Limited (GGTL) in Trinidad; I have contributed tangibly towards improvements in operations and controls. I am now seeking new challenges in Canada in the Accounting and Finance field. I am currently applying for permanent residence in Canada through the express entry program.

I am a proven leader with strong communication skills both upwards to Executive Committee and downwards to subordinates and I believe that have developed these skills over my years of experience. I consider my greatest strength to be taking command of my duties and performing at a high standard with minimal supervision as demonstrated during my career. I have excellent leadership skills and have made strides in building and fostering good teams in all areas of my job.

As evidenced in the enclosed resume my experience encompasses planning, preparation of financial statements, the coordination of external and internal audits and compliance. I know that my strong commitment to high ethical and professional standards would allow me to make significant contributions to any organization. I welcome the chance to discuss my qualifications and experiences with you in greater detail at your convenience. I appreciate your time and consideration.

Sincerely

Vedwati Kalloo CPA, CGA, MBA
