The letter of application

If you choose to provide a letter of application with your completed application form or CV (if requested) remember its function.

It introduces you and your application form or CV to a potential employer. The letter should be fairly brief and to the point. Remember employers have to deal with a lot of applications and need the facts.

Simple format

  • Your introduction and the source of your application e.g. media you saw the post advertised in, date it was advertised and job reference number.
  • A Statement of relevance to role advertised e.g. what you are currently doing and why you feel you are suitable.
  • Sign off – e.g. positive statement expressing interest in post and availability to attend interview.
