Dear hiring manager,

I am writing in regards to the CEO position at Avaaz. I am excited to apply for this role as it is a perfect match for my skills and experience.

I have +10 years of professional experience, with a demonstrated passion for and commitment to drive large scale change for the global public good. My working knowledge of the highest levels of the public, private and non-profit sectors, as well as my successful track record dealing with high- level decision-makers in the public and/or private sectors, makes me confident that I would excel in this role.

In addition, I have experience building and/or strengthening strategic partnerships, ideally across sectors, that delivered significant impacts. My understanding of the financial and operational considerations of an organisation similar to Avaaz’s size (budget $25-30m; 100+ staff, globally distributed) will allow me to hit the ground running in this role.

Finally, I have a deep self-awareness and a demonstrated commitment to self development. My ability to set inspirational strategy that delivers impact while also leading and developing best in class teams makes me confident that I would be a valuable asset to your organisation.

I look forward to discussing my qualifications further during an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Oscar Soria
