I am writing to confirm my interest in the position of Overseas Sales Manager that was announced last week. As I mentioned during our phone conversation, I would very much like to have the opportunity to work abroad again.
I am confident that I would be able to do the work of this type, as I have developed a solid customer base in my region and successfully managed our extensive sales network for a number of years. My previous work in Asia gave me a lot of experience working with a multinational team, which I think will be important in the context of this job.
I have contacted my manager to inform him of my application and he has agreed to release me from my current duties in August.
In the meantime, should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Yours sincerely,
