Dear Sir, Madam:
The position of Assistant for Politics and Programs that your organisation is offering is precisely what I am looking for. In addition, I am very enthusiastic about Brazil and I am concentrating my job searches primarily toward that country.
Cleary(Note: "clearly" to you maybe but not yet to any prospective employer), I believe my strongest asset for this position is my excellent controlunderstanding and use of the two languages required (French and English). AlthoughI have various working experiencesexperience within the NGO sector. Notably, I have been working for a South African NGO as an assistant project manager . During this experiencetime I assumed a variety of duties, but the most appealing ones were those related to research and analysis.
Consequently, I decided to specialise in
myself towardthis field. I completed my education bywith obtaining a Masters Degree in Political Science withinat the most selectiveexclusive French University in this field, named“la Sorbonne” (5% of successful candidates out of 986). During those studies I worked hard to gain a solid political and social analytical background. I produced a variety of documents (weekly press notes, monthly reports with political and economical focus). In the mean time, I worked for two French NGOs as a researcher to assess my abilities in this field, and both experiences proved to be successful.
ThisMy diploma, together with those professional experiences, I think, demonstrates my strong motivation to pursue a career workin this area. Also,I believe also that they guarantee high-quality analytical abilities as well as research and writing skills.
However, I do not have a professional background in fundraising as
requiredmentioned in the job description. I did create a project of a “mobile cinema” for underprivileged people for which I raised funds and solicited donations, but this was a personal initiative. Nevertheless, I am interested in developing my abilities in this area.
My various experience abroad (studies, expatriations, travels) show an open and curious personality with adaptive competencies. Also, people I have been working with describe me as a good team player and someone that is confident in relating to others in a positive manner.
I know that if you give me the opportunity, I could be an resourceful and productive
personasset within ActionAid Brazil. As your offer match exactly what I am looking for and thus make me enthusiastic The position description matches exactly what I am looking for and I am anxious to hear from you about the possibility of being a productive member of your organization.
