Dear Ms Graham,

I am taking this opportunity to apply for the Social Worker position that I saw yesterday on the website.

I am committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of those I look after.

As a proven professional I am able to make a real difference to the lives of children, adults and families who seek my help. I will bring to your position a track record of helping people who are disabled, have learning difficulties or who are addicted to drugs/alcohol. By the same token, I have helped many people to reduce their dependence on Social Services by carrying out early intervention and encouraging them to have more contact with their friends, family and neighbours. I have extensive experience of dealing with reports of child abuse, carrying out risk assessments on vulnerable individuals and case conferencing.

The foundation of my achievements to date lies in my ability to identify the genuine needs of my clients and to then develop practical care plans for them which in turn will enable them to lead independent lives.

Since July 2011 I have been employed by the Central Healthcare Group where I have responded professionally to requests for assistance, even when that meant working outside of normal working hours.

On a personal level I work well as part of a team and can exercise an appropriate level of authority when mentoring junior staff. In addition to this I possess a clean driving license, am willing to making social visits to people in their homes and by nature am a person who enjoys working with others.

I appreciate very much you taking the time to consider my credentials and I hope that you will realise my future potential and invite me for an interview.

Yours sincerely,
