Dear Vivian O'Donnell

I gather from the Diamond IT website that you are currently expanding your mobile computer maintenance business in the Leicester area. I would be very interested to hear of any job opportunities that may arise as part of your expansion. Please see attached my CV for your information.

You will see that I have successfully completed a range of IT qualifications. I have recently returned from a year abroad, where I volunteered as a mobile IT technician for a charity in India. During this time I have gained wide experience of technical, problem-solving and customer skills. I have also realised the importance of flexibility and using my initiative.

I would be very pleased to hear from you about any job openings at Diamond IT. Of course I am happy to attend an interview.

I look forward to hearing from you.
