RE: Motivation letter

I am writing to apply for the position of Investigator ,P5 located in Nairobi-Kenya .
This position which is presented in the job listing is very interesting to me and I believe that my strong technical experience and education will make me a very competitive candidate for a suitable position. The key strengths that I possess for success in some positions include:
• I have experience of ten years working as investigator at the UNICTR in Arusha. I identified, localized, interviewed and collected statements from more than six hundred witnesses among them more than two hundred came to testify before different chambers of the UNICTR. I worked as defence investigator and I intervened in seven cases. My investigations were based on the evidence disclosed to the defence by the Office of the Prosecutor, including their statements and identities as I was in charge of finding the evidence to challenge theirs.
• During the period of ten years, I was working hand in hand with the different sections of the UNICTR such as Office of The Prosecutor, Chambers, Registry, etc. ,mostly
