Subject: Application for sales manager position 

Dear Mr Kelly,

I'm writing in response to the job posting for a sales manager on the ABC Jobs website. 

I have five years of sales experience. I've spent the last three years as a team leader in a large store, managing a team of 20 sales assistants. I have prior experience hiring, training, and managing employees. I have excellent communication skills and am fluent in Italian, Spanish, and English. 

I have attached my CV, which contains additional information about my background and qualifications. 

I'm hoping to hear from you soon.

Best regards,

Laura Mezznati
