Subject: Promotion to operations manager

Dear Mr. /Ms.  [NAME HERE],

I have been working for [The Bank] for six years. I have recently heard that the operations manager is being transferred to the headquarters of the bank. Hence, the position is vacant. With due respect and diligence, I am interested in getting promoted to this post. I am working as an assistant operations manager for two years.

I have attended a six months workshop on employees training recently. I am confident to cope with monitoring, scheduling and retaining the set standards and procedures. My enthusiasm and goals are always clearly defined. Last year, I have been awarded the best employee of the year award.

I wish that my painted intention will be considered. And, my humble petition will be acknowledged.

I hope to hear back soon.

With best regards
