Dear Mr. (Y),
I recently came across your company advertisement in the (XYZ Newspaper/Online site etc.) concerning the available position of Assistant Quality Control Adviser with (name of the company).
I have been employed as a (your current job position) at (name of your current company) for (X years/months). My Job responsibilities have included (list your key job responsibilities) but I feel that I am capable of so much more and have actively been searching for some time now for new opportunities and challenges that will allow me to grow within my field.
My strengths include my excellent, natural instincts as a planner and coordinator, ensuring deadlines can be met and quality effectively controlled in a timely manner without losing sight of the brand's image to be strictly maintained.
This is something of great importance to me, as I believe that when delivery and manufacturing deadlines can be tight, quality can suffer through speedy jobs rushed due to a lack of manufacturing time. (You may wish to add something personal to you here instead or in addition to this last sentence).
My first priority with (name of company) would be to ensure that production is completed according to company standards while continuing to produce products consistent in both quality and design - the two primary elements the final customer will use to judge the product and brand in order to decide whether to become a loyal client or not for us in the future.
I wish to thank you for the time taken today to read through this letter and I hope that my (enclosed/attached Resume/C.V) together with the information I provided you above, will prove to you that I am the right candidate for this job and that (name of company) would benefit greatly from my participation as a team player.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
(your name + signature)
