Hi Jo, I hope you are well.

I noticed the tweet about the role within your team and hoped that persistence might be the key. I had an interview last June and although I wasnt successful, my feedback was positive and I was told to keep in touch. I still have a very keen interest in Tangerine, following them on Twitter and often reading up on Account wins. I noticed that one of your clients is Skills Solutions, I currently work within the Solutions Group and my education background covers Apprenticeships which I can see you are largely promoting. Over the past 6 months my role has evolved, I work closely with the Apprenticeship Team understanding that this is the future for young learners especially with the rise in University fees, I have various contacts and ran a successful launch event not long ago. I have taken lead on Social Media for Education Business Solutions and also write for the Manchester Solutions Brief as well as playing a major part in bid writing. I would love to be considered for this role and can now offer a broader range of skills, contacts and links. My agency background and sound education knowledge as well as an event related degree would fit well within your team. I am driven, passionate and persistent and can only hope that my personality came through when I met you before. I have attached my cv as a reminder of my skills and look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards Adele Burton
