Dear Mr/ Mrs,

I would like to apply for the advertised position of Project Admin Assistan as advertised in the Republikein of Friday, 30 June 2017.

I have come to love working with people, and coupled with a strong administrative background I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to  assist with the smooth running of your back office and providing administrative support  to the BMCC and CBNRM projects that are currently underway. 

 My English and Afrikaans is on a professional proficiency level, and I can speak and understand German as a third language. Good interpersonal skills allow me to effectively communicate with a wide variety of people, work well in a team and solve problems quickly. I am proficient in MS Office applications.

My best value proposition is that I am a hard worker who brings enthusiasm and professionalism to any team I am part of. I believe I am a positive person who is mature, dynamic and can cope well when the going gets tough. I believe this can only benefit your team.

Clients and colleagues have described me as friendly, meticulous and trustworthy.

 I am currently studying toward a Diploma in Human Resource Management,  planning on completing my second academic year by the end of  2017. 

I am available within one month's notice.

Your time and consideration will be much appreciated!


Kind Regards,

Donata van Rooyen
