Dear Mr Turner,

Re: Recruitment Officer Vacancy (#345J)

I was thrilled when I saw a vacancy for the above role on your company website as this is a position that I am enormously keen on pursuing. I am confident that with the skills that I possess and my passion for recruitment, I would be a fantastic fit for this role.

For the past year, I have been working as a Human Resources Assistant for a large agency where I was mainly responsible for assisting senior HR professionals with the recruitment of staff. As part of my job, I am responsible for reviewing job applications, performing background checks, short listing candidates, booking meeting rooms, arranging job interviews, and performing general admin duties. These responsibilities have given me a comprehensive and practical insight into the recruitment process from start to finish.

I have a confident personality and possess excellent communication skills with the ability to speak clearly and professionally; whether face-to-face or over the phone. Due to my hard work and dedication, I have been named “Employee of the Month” on two occasions.

I am especially attracted to joining your organisation because of the emphasis it puts on long-term growth and training within the company. Challenges motivate me, and I believe that I would be able to bring together my prior knowledge and skills as a competent Recruitment Officer. I am confident that my records of impressive accomplishments over the past few years prove that I will become a valuable asset to Lancefield Recruitment.

I have enclosed my CV with this covering letter which will provide additional information on my past work experience. I would also be keen to meet with you to further demonstrate my suitability for this role. I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Sophie Clark.
