Dear Mr. Custer,
I was highly interested in your advertised Records Manager position and am writing in response. I have ten years of experience working as a Records Manager. In response to the changing ways in which business records are stored I went back to school and completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology seven years ago.
I have assisted my company in records management to change over to electronic storage methods. Business documents are now scanned in and stored in Cloud systems allowing for easy retrieval and cataloging. In this way business records can be securely stored and easily retrieved while saving on space and costs of maintaining a file room. My willingness to change methods with the times makes me a terrific prospect. My work allowed my company to make a painless transition to modern business document storage methods. As a strong proponent of electronic discovery methods I recognize that in today’s world businesses often unfortunately do get sued but e-discovery participation allows for the quick provision of relevant documents. I would be a great Records Manager addition for your company.
I would like to set up an interview time with you to discuss the position. Please contact me via phone to schedule.

Dear Ms Egan
Re: Government Records Manager position
I am writing to apply for the position of Government Records Manager at the NSW Register of Births, Deaths and Unions as advertised recently on worknow.com.au.
I am an organised and self-motivated professional records manager with a Graduate Diploma in Records Management and Archives, a Bachelor of Arts in Librarianship and Corporate Information Management, and six years of experience in a records management environment.
In my current role with Stapleton City Council, I am responsible for the development and management of the department’s electronic document and records management system. This involves swift and accurate document and data storage, retrieval and delivery, overseeing and training records management personnel, and being the chief point of contact for records department queries.
It also encompasses the development, maintenance and monitoring of the archives database, managing the records budget, and ensuring legislative compliance in all records management, mail handling, disposal procedures and retention schedules.
During my time with the department, I have overseen the transition of all RM and DM systems to an SSD digital system, and the concomitant implementation of department-wide RM training so that all staff are able to easily access the records they require.
In addition to excellent organisational skills and a strong attention to detail, I am an exceptional communicator with well-honed team supervision and management skills. I am thoroughly familiar with the State Records Act and other relevant legislation, including the Public Service Act and the Archives Act. I also have a solid understanding of AS ISO 15489.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
