Dear Mr Aurelio,
RE: Systems Analyst position
I am writing to apply for the systems analyst position as advertised on SEEK.com.au.
I have over three years’ experience in developing and implementing bespoke IT-led solutions in the private investment sector and possess an up-to-date suite of technical skills. In my role as a systems analyst for Data Daemon I have honed my ability to problem-solve for a range of complex issues and achieve excellent outcomes.
In order to come up with a successful solution, I believe you first have to understand core business goals and strategies, and these are things I understand well within the financial services environment. I am able to communicate effectively to determine the needs of internal stakeholders and individual clients and possess the focus required to diagnose problems, foresee threats and accurately test solutions.
Working within a large company but taking responsibility for a diverse client portfolio has given me the opportunity to work both collaboratively and autonomously, from understanding individual requirements to drafting specifications and overseeing company-wide deployment. My experience in writing user manuals and presenting bespoke solutions to clients has equipped me with strong written, verbal and visual communication skills.
As a change-leading professional, I thrive in dynamic environments and am looking for a position where I can continue to effect positive change for market leaders. I believe my experience and track record speak to the specific requirements of this position and would embrace the challenge of working with HQC Financial. Thank you for reviewing my application and I look forward to hearing from you.
