Dear Sir,

Subject: Letter of Intent for Promotion

It has come to my knowledge that Mr. Billy Jones, the Company Accountant, is leaving the business end of the month. Hence, his position would be vacant. I would like to apply for a promotion to replace Mr.Jones when he leaves.

I am putting forth this letter of intent for a promotion to the vacant Company Accountant position at this reputable company, of which I have been serving for five years. I have had the privilege of working with Mr. Jones for the last year as his assistant, and I am well versed with the responsibilities of the Company Accountant post. Aside from having worked with Mr.Jones, accounts were my primary subject at college, so I am well versed in handling the accounts of a  company. Along with the responsibilities, I would like the management to know that I am quite capable of dealing with a team on my own and have done so earlier in my college. According to some of my college professors, I show good leadership skills which will certainly come in handy.

I do hope that the Management will consider my intention mentioned. Perhaps Mr. Jones can give a kind reference on my behalf. I am a quick learner so even if there are things that I need to know before taking up the position of the company accountant, I can learn it in a short period and will work in an efficient manner.

I hope to hear favorably from you on this matter. Awaiting a positive reply.

Thanking You

Yours Sincerely,

Larry Roberts

Assistant Accountant
