Mr Jason Simpson
LP Sanders Consultancy

Dear Mr Simpson,
Re: Policy Advisor (Ref: JJ934)
Your advertisement for the above vacancy captured my attention, and I wish to be considered for this position.
I graduated in 2016 with a 2:1 degree in BSc Politics and International Relations from the University of Birmingham. Some of the relevant modules that I studied include Understanding Politics, Introduction to International Relations Theory, Policy, and British Politics. My studies have given me a great insight into how government policies are initiated, formulated and passed into law. I have also worked as a voluntary Policy Assistant Officer at a local pressure group for the past three months, where I participated in meetings with various stakeholders and government officials.
My greatest passion in life is to make a positive difference in society, hence the reason for studying politics at the University. I enjoy keeping myself up to date with the latest developments in current affairs. I am an organised, punctual, and hardworking individual who can deal with a heavy workload and is willing to work overtime when required.
I firmly believe that my excellent writing and interpersonal skills, combined with my ability to conduct complex negotiations, put me in a great position to work as a Policy Advisor at LP Sanders Consultancy.
I hope that my attached CV further demonstrates that I am the ideal candidate for this role, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for considering me for this position. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you require any additional information.
