Dear Ms Graham,

Your company recently posted an opening for a Compliance Officer on the website. This is a role that seems to fit my precise competencies and for which I am now enthusiastically applying.

The nature of my career to date and my ability to recognize and focus on critical issues has fully prepared me for your position.

I am not only an expert at drafting and maintaining compliance policies, but also have the strong decision making, analytic, and investigative skills needed to correctly analyse information to identify potential issues. As at true professional I am able to demonstrate sound judgement and apply logical and critical thought processes when developing and recommending compliance related solutions.

During my current employment I have learnt how to effectively manage compliance activities within a department. At work I am primarily responsible for managing the regulatory risks and controls of the business to ensure they comply with applicable laws and regulations. I am heavily involved in participating in the analysis of key policies and procedures.

Right now I want to work for a reputable company like yours that offers an excellent compensation and benefits package.

I hope that the information contained in this letter and the attached resume will assist my application and encourage you to invite me to an interview. If required, I can provide you with excellent references from my current and previous employers.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my application.

Yours sincerely,

Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Deutsche Bank


Compliance officer


6 years of experience in the financial services, LL.M Finance degree and passion for asset management – that is something I can offer to X. I’m convinced that my legal experience backed with my understanding of various fund structures and different asset classes, coupled with my quick learning abilities, make me a good candidate for this vacant position. My resume is enclosed for your review.

During my professional career, I was always searching for challenges that could satisfy my need to work in dynamic environment and constantly develop new skills. My current position has given me exposure to the way Deutsche Bank distributes UCITS and AIFs (some structured products too) in EMEA and APAC, and contributed to my knowledge of associated regulations in different jurisdictions. It also helped me to learn how to effectively approach and successfully advise people from different regions or business lines. My inter-team involvement helped me to be selected for several internal projects for enhancing risk control framework of the bank resulting in implementing these controls globally. Previously as an in-house counsel in NPL portfolio purchase business, I have successfully built the legal department. Efficient advice during negotiations of several portfolios, as well as rewarding coordination of three external law offices and internal organization of the department have, inter alia, brought me promotion to the department head which I passed because of the scholarship for LL.M at X.

When you review my CV, you will see that I started as M&A analyst focused on privatization sell and –buy side deals (in the leading IB boutique in SEE region where I did internship too). Although initially still without bachelor’s degree, I was entrusted with significant responsibilities in a highly dynamic business environment where I learned how to search and analyze data, enhanced my presentation skills and get used to work under significant time pressure. I believe that my cross-functional knowledge, combined with the entrepreneurial spirit and analytical thinking will allow me to make an immediate impact at my new role.

I am feeling very motivated to provide legal advice relating to different funds in somewhat more human sized environment than DB is. Luxembourg is a premier place for asset management, so it seems to me like a logical next step.

Thank you for taking the time to review my credentials. If you have any questions — or when you are ready to schedule an interview — please give me a call at X.
