Mr Richard Haywood
HR Director
Romford Human Resources
27 Circular Road
RA14 4BY

Dear Mr Haywood,

Re: HR Officer (Ref: GG249)

I recently had a chat with Mr Paul Swift from your organisation, and he strongly recommended me to apply for this position as I would be an excellent candidate for this job.

I have been working as an HR Assistant for the past two years at the University of London. My primary responsibilities include assisting senior HR professionals with their duties, organising meetings, interviewing and shortlisting candidates and producing documentation. Additionally, I have a 2:1 degree in Business Management from Birmingham City University, which has given me a solid understanding of how business and its related processes function.

I am an organised, methodical and hard-working person with a passion for working with people. I have the excellent ability to interact with people, whether face-to-face, over the phone or via email, in a professional manner. I also possess excellent research and writing skills, something that I further enhanced during my undergraduate studies.

I am currently relocating to Romford and pursuing a career in HR locally would be a dream comes true for me. I firmly believe that my education, combined with my work experience in Human Resources, make me the ideal candidate for this position at your company.

I hope that you will agree with me that my personal experience, strengths and abilities are a perfect match for this role. Please do not hesitate to contact me on 07651 162 913 if you’d like to arrange an interview or require any more information. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Rachel Howard.
