Bon soir..

A very good letter. I'll make a few suggestions.
Go back to the job advertisement and note carefully what specific skills and abilities are required. Your letter should be written so that the employer when reading it will think "this is exactly the kind of person we need for this job!"
"Dear Sir or Madam" -- no! Find out who handles job applications in the company and address your letter to him or her.
"I wish to apply for the job of ---- as advertised in ----.
I have six years experience in Insurance, initially as manager and then as underwriter. In that time I have developed and cover claims"

"My experience, organizing ability and professionalism would enable me to make a significant and valuable contribution to your team."

"I thank you in advance......application"
(I would not thank him for reading your application, as that is his job, after all)

You should put your name, date of birth and contact details at the top of the CV. Try to rephrase your CV to highlight the individual contribution you brought to the jobs you have held. The CV should not be merely a list of duties. It should have more of a personal flavour.

Under "Interests" include something to show how sociable you are. (e.g. "Meeting friends") They will want to know what it would be like to have you around all day and if you mix well with people.

Sorry to be so verbose - bonne chance!
