I've done this a few times for teaching work; in fact, it's how I got all my teachng jobs so far (about 6 of them in total!), and this is based on what I do:
1. Target your skills and knowledge to the post you're looking for and to the department in the email message.
2. Highlight anything outstanding about you which is relevant in the email message.
3. Tailor your CV.
4. Be direct and state straight away what you are looking for - indicate it in the email heading.
5. Send it to a few people: the head of department, anyone who looks after teaching, anyone who you think could be your direct manager. These things can sometimes take a while to get to the right person - I heard after a year of my CV being passed around various people for my current job.
I think that's it, I'm really knackered so there could be something missing... Hope it helps.
