Att: To whom it may concern

Dear Sir/Madam:

Re: Application for Employment

My Name is Mohamed Fareed Vallie and I have successfully completed my B-tech in Internal Auditing at Cape Peninsula University of Technology in 2007. With my qualification, I completed subjects as Financial Accounting, Cost & Management Accounting, Corporate Reporting, Tax, and Management as well as Law subjects.

I then began my corporate work experience as a Pension Fund Specialist in the one of the Big 4 CA Companies in the world for about two years, which allowed me to have exposure to the Financial Services Industry and Liaise with the world’s top Investing/ Banking Companies and Liaise with CA Article clerks, Managers and Partners and then further gained just under a years experience in the Employee benefit sector as an Annuity Administrator at another top and well established financial company and then a further three years as a Risk Quotation Analyst in another and one of the longest and oldest financial service industry companies.

I then decided to complete my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate in South Africa in order to pursue a possible career in teaching abroad as well as to experience a different culture and environment. And therefore got the opportunity to teach English in Thailand to high school students and travel and broaden my horizon out of South-Africa.

But my Passion for business, crunching figures, analytical thinking and the constant learning and development hungers for more. Therefore wish to continue my career in corporate once again.

I believe I possess the prerequisite practical skills as well as communication skills to facilitate my presence in your company. I am more than willing to adapt, learn and accept the various challenges the field has to offer.
