Dear (Mr/Ms/Miss Name given in advert),

I'm writing with regard to the position of Customer Sales Team Leader which was recently advertised in My Town Chronicle.

I'm very interested in this position and have the knowledge, skills and experience youÂ’re looking for to make the job a success.

My long term experience as a Supervisor in the Customer Sales Industry has taught me how to lead and motivate a team to achieve demanding sales targets within a competitive market. In January, my team reached its monthly sales target after only 2 weeks and went on to secure sales of more than double any other team, with no compromise to sale quality or customer service.

I'm keen to develop my career in Customer Sales and am ready to move to a more senior role where I can demonstrate my potential. I believe the position of Customer Sales Team Leader can give me this opportunity and that I can help ABC Company reach its goals.

Please find enclosed my CV (or Job Application Form) which gives you further information about my career and my suitability for this position.

I look forward to meeting you soon for an interview.

Yours sincerely
