Dear Ms Smith,




I write to express my interest in fulfilling the role of [naam vacature] for your organisation. I have about 10 years experience as [functie] with a range of companies.




Immediately after completing my education [naam opleiding] in [jaar], I started work with [werkgever 1]. I am currently working for [huidige werkgever]. My current responsibilities include [opsomming taken].




Your organisation's objectives interest me a great deal. As [naam vacature] with your company, I believe I can also utilise my skills to [interessante nieuwe werkzaamheden die in de huidige functie niet voorkomen]. This versatility appeals to me and, furthermore, the role of [naam vacature] would give me the opportunity to further my career. The latter is, unfortunately, not possible with my current employer as a result of the age range within my department.



I would be delighted to clarify my motivation further in a personal meeting. Should you not have any current vacancies, could I kindly ask you to retain my letter for any opportunities in the future.


Yours sincerely,






Tine de Jong
