Re: Project Officer (Job ID 5447)

Dear Ms. Turner:

I am writing to apply for the position of Project Officer at Children First. Since I possess vast experience in working for a community based organizations, I believe I may be the right person you are looking for. My knowledge and understanding of policies and issues relevant to the rights of people is a proof that I can be an asset to your organization.

I have worked as a Project Officer for WWF Perth for over three years and have learned quite a lot from my experience there. Please refer below for a list of some of my duties at my previous place of work:

– Conducting research and policy work along with organizing and running workshops as directed
– Developing and implementing research strategies
– Organizing agendas for meetings and creating links with organizations holding similar views
– Providing overall project support to teams as directed

Moving from Perth to Devonport was not an easy decision for me as I loved my work at WWF and all that it stood for. Ever since I moved, I have been looking for a position where I can truly make a difference with my acquired knowledge and experience. I would like to meet with you in person so that we can discuss the possibility of my joining you at this post. You may reach me at 05 66-9999 if you wish to speak to me.
