Dear Mr Smith
I am very keen to apply for the post of Social Worker that was recently advertised on XYZ website
and enclose my CV for your consideration.
I am a fully qualified social worker with 10 years of experience in DEF City Council’s social work
department. My experience involves the successful management of a demanding caseload that has
included elderly people and people who have learning disabilities and/or mental health issues. I
have the ability to deal with what can be difficult and emotional issues in a calm and practical
manner by finding out what is really important to the client’s needs.
My ability to communicate and reach agreement with other agencies, such as primary care practices
and psychology services, is first class and I have a team approach to establishing what is best for
each individual. I am used to working unsocial hours, including evenings and weekends.
I would like to discuss my application further with you and welcome the opportunity to attend for
interview. I shall contact you within the next few days to check if having an informal discussion
about the post is possible.
I look forward to hearing from you.
