Dear Mr Brown,
I am very interested in the office assistant vacancy which was advertised in this week’s
Bracknell News and would like to apply for this position.
I have recently left school having completed my GCSEs and would like to find employment
in an office environment where I can undertake further training. Although I have not been
in full-time employment in an office before, I did undertake my work experience placement
as an office assistant and received very positive feedback from my supervisors. I have also
been working part-time for the local newsagents for the past year where I have developed
good transferable skills.
Please find enclosed a copy of my CV which, I feel, shows that I am a suitable candidate for
I look forward to hearing from you.
