Available on request.

Application for employment: Financial Controller.

I hereby apply for the above named position in your organization.

I started my professional career as a Customer Experience Officer (C.E.O.) at Standard Chartered Bank in July 2008 before proceeding to work in the Audit Division of a highly rated multidisciplinary professional services firm - KPMG Professional Services where I acquired world - class accounting and auditing experience. In KPMG, we specialise in the provision of global accounting and auditing services to local and foreign based clients.

Working with KPMG Audit (Energy & Natural Resources Unit) has helped me further develop as well as sharpen my computer skills, analytical skills, communication and interpersonal skills, numerical reasoning skills as well as my accounting and auditing skills, all which would go a long way in adding intrinsic and extrinsic corporate value to the business. In addition, the acquired experience has helped me broaden my international outlook while benchmarking global best practices in the professional services industry, all of which I intend to bring along to the business in the course of my career growth and development in the company.

I am applying for a position with you because I strongly believe that I can effectively & efficiently work with other members of the Cost Control / Project Services & Finance Teams. Also, having done a lot of work with experts in accounting, auditing and financial matters in KPMG, coupled with my background in a numerate discipline, as well as my flair for numerate tasks and my familiarity with numbers, I would be adding more value in more ways than the average applicant. In addition, I have proficiency certificates in the use of ERP software such as SAP, Sage Pastel Evolution and other business – oriented software such as Advanced Microsoft Excel. I also have a Master Class Certificate in Project Management Professional (PMP) Training as well as a Proficiency Certificate in the knowledge & application of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

I have worked both as an auditor and as an accounts / finance person, and currently work as the Project Cost Controller at Delta Tek Offshore; having previously worked in the Manufacturing industry as a Plant Financial Controller, so I am able to deliver world - class results as expected of a true ambassador of the accounting profession.

Please find enclosed herewith, a soft copy of my updated resume for your consideration.

Please do feel free to put a call through (or even an e – mail, if you prefer) anytime if you need to seek any clarifications, or if further explanations, details and / or information would be needed / required. I would be very delighted to hear from you.

Thanking you in anticipation of your favourable response.

Best Regards,

OLUWANIRAN, Oluwafemi.
