Sample cover letter for Full Time position at United Nations
GOT THE JOB? Yes
To Whom it May Concern,
I am fascinated to work with the UN, because I believe to achieve lasting social change through the involvement of for-profit investment require the composition of knowledge, negotiating skills and hands on experience with the private sector in development supported by disciplined rigorous administrative management. I want to explore the boundaries of my performance and increase my competency to take part in projects managing investments related development programs to ensure the balance between philanthropy and financial viability. Being an expert in public administration experience with international organisations in procurement and coordination support with strong analytical and communication background, I would like to offer my skills and expertise for the position Administrative Assistant with UN. My professional motivation is to work in a challenging work environment with the possibility for professional growth. In the following I wish to highlight three of my key competencies and personal passion for working with quality coordination and administrative support, which makes me an ideal candidate for Administrative Assistant position.
Intuitive personality – observation and sensing information
Providing administrative link between the various organizational functions has been a guiding light in my career choices thus far. In my roles, albeit very different in nature, the common denominator has always been the drive to support program mechanisms through research and administrative support. Through interacting with colleagues and stakeholders, I tend to quickly observe and analyze individual roles, opportunities, challenges and motivations. One of my professional achievements was the coordination and organization of a Quality Laboratory workshop in East-Africa. During the process I had to accommodate interest of various stakeholders, observe different information flows while meeting tight deadlines. The workshop was a success and gave the opportunity for Reproductive Health (RH) commodity manufacturers and laboratory technicians to deepen their understanding of to logistics and quality testing.
Structured thinking – a drive to deliver results
Having worked with project management in academia and international organizations, I have developed a structured mindset, client oriented attitude and strong ownership to deliver high quality results. I believe that my background and diverse experience could bring effective problem solving skills and support the UN's mission at the same time provide an outstanding opportunity for professional development and personal growth.

Dear Ms Brown
Re: International Aid Program Coordinator position
I am writing to apply for the position of International Aid Program Coordinator, as advertised recently on the EHA website.
I am a qualified, dedicated and experienced international humanitarian aid worker, specialising in nutritional program coordination. My most recent role has been the coordination of all aspects of local nutrition programs in South Sudan for Exfam International, a small humanitarian relief organisation.
My time in South Sudan has seen me plan, implement, evaluate and report on programs that provide both immediate emergency relief and sustainable local development. I have overseen the distribution of essential foods and supplements, coordination of primary health care services, training of program delivery teams, provision of logistical and technical support, and the preparation of funding submissions and grant proposals. This role has also involved collecting and analysing data on the impact and effectiveness of our health programs on communities, as well as ensuring WHO compliance in every aspect of our program delivery.
This experience, in addition to my previous experience in humanitarian relief in South East Asia, has given me knowledge and perspective in humanitarian emergency situations, and an understanding of the importance of developing sustainable community development programs.
I have a strong academic grounding in international aid, health and project management, having completed a Bachelor of Arts (International Aid and Development), a Graduate Diploma in International Health and a Certificate IV in Project Management.
I possess excellent organisational skills and an ability to maintain the big picture while attending to details and logistics. I am an excellent communicator, with an ability to manage large teams of people; and I remain calm and positive under pressure, especially in what can be difficult or traumatic situations.
My life and career have been driven by a strong passion to alleviate the suffering of disadvantaged people around the world. I believe the West has a responsibility to help poorer nations, and I would love to play an integral part in enacting that.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
