Dear Mrs Carr,

Re: Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (REF: EJ356)

It was a pleasure to have met you yesterday regarding the above position. I can confirm that I am still interested, and I hope that you will carefully consider my application for this role.

I have been a huge fan and activist for the Party of Change for the past three years. In this time, I have had the pleasure of working with and supporting many of the party’s MPs, councillors and election campaign managers. I truly believe in everything the party stands for and wants to achieve, and it would be an honour to serve the party and my community as an MP.

I graduated in 2015 with a first-class degree in BSc Politics from the University of Southampton. Key modules that I studied include; political systems and ideas, international relations, democracy and modern state, globalisation, and world politics. This has given me a comprehensive insight into the world of politics and governance. I am a charismatic, confident and motivated individual driven by the strong desire to change the world for the better, one step at a time. I have excellent leadership and public speaking skills.

I have enclosed a copy of my CV for your consideration, which I hope will convince you that I am the ideal candidate for this important position. Thank you for taking the time to review my application, and I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Trevor Allan.
