HR Manager
Crown Prosecution Service
22 Newtown Street

Dear Mrs Chapman,

Re: Barrister (REF: ERH24)

It was a pleasure to have met you the other day to discuss the above role at your organisation. I am still very interested, and I hope that you will consider my application for this position.

I am currently working as a self-employed Barrister, representing both individuals and organisations in courts and tribunals. I have worked with more than 200 clients over the past two years. My key services include; representing clients in court, providing advice and guidance on legal matters, drafting up legal documents, and negotiating settlements.

I previously worked as a qualified Solicitor at Barnes & Co Ltd., where I was responsible for dealing with legal cases related to family, immigration, commerce and crime. My experience to date in legal services has expanded my legal knowledge, improved my communication and negotiation skills, and made me into a confident and dependable legal professional.

I am currently looking for an opportunity to discontinue my self-employment work and pursue a long-term career at the Crown Prosecution Service. I firmly believe that my contribution to your services will be invaluable.

Please find attached my CV for your attention. I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to meeting with you to discuss my candidacy further.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Brian Robertson.
