Dear Mr Smith
I am interested in applying for the Social Worker position that you recently advertised in the Brent Evening Mail.
After reading the job description I believe I would be an ideal candidate for this position as I feel I have the relevant skills and abilities required for the job.
I am currently working as a social worker for Birmingham City Council and have over two years experience of working in a highly pressurised environment and dealing successfully with vulnerable people in difficult circumstances. I would also like to point out that I have experience of working irregular hours at a hospice, including evenings, nights and weekends.
I feel that my greatest professional ability is to meet each of my client’s unique needs by gaining a in-depth understanding of their circumstances, problems and requirements.
With this cover letter please find enclosed my current CV. I hope that you will consider my application and I would welcome a phone call so that we might be able to set up an interview. If you need any further information then please do not hesitate to contact me. I thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
