HR Assistant Cover Letter Example
« on: June 01, 2012, 11:38:49 AM »


Cover letter example for a HR Assistant position. Amend as suitable and start using it for your job applications.

HR Assistant Cover Letter Example

Dear Sirs

I should like to apply for the role of HR Assistant, as advertised recently. I am currently doing my Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) exams while working in a small family firm, where I have helped to create a staff handbook, update the website on the company recruitment policies and ensure that all notices were displayed correctly around the premises.

I also looked after the health and safety aspects regarding the communal facilities and ensuring that any issues were brought to the attention of the manager concerned.

I am very keen to further my career development and, although I have been extremely happy working for my current employer, Iíd really like to expand my horizons and work for a larger company to enable me to develop my career in human resources. I am a good team player, and very discreet and tactful which I think is a prerequisite for working in HR.

I very much hope you will consider my application favourably; I am available for interview at your convenience. References available on request.

I attach my CV and look forward to hearing from you as appropriate.

Yours faithfully

Dear Mrs Smith

Vacancy for the post of HR Officer

I noticed your advertisement for the above position and think I would make an excellent candidate for it.  I have several years of experience within an HR environment and have experience of assisting with recruitment, training, absence management and appraisal activities.  During that time, I have also developed excellent working relationships with managers and regularly provide advice and guidance to them.

I am looking for a position where I can progress my career and increase my responsibilities further.  I am currently pursuing my CIPD qualification on a part-time basis at my own expense.  However, you will see from my CV that I have also taken advantage of other training opportunities and have attended courses in analysing CVs, employment law and writing policies and procedures.

I work well with others but can also use my initiative to see through a task.  I also have good IT skills and can use the full Microsoft Office suite, email and HR software.

I would really like to be given the chance to discuss my application further at interview.  Please feel free to contact me on (phone number) or at (e-mail address) if you need any additional information.

Thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely

John Brown

Or this .....

Dear Ms Drury,

I am writing with reference to the position of HR Assistant at Team International, as posted on your website last week. I have enclosed my CV with this letter which will demonstrate my experience and knowledge to perform this job well. Along with my diploma in Human Resources Management from the University of Manchester I have extensive experience in this field.

My skills and capabilities are in line with the requirements stated in your job description. I am extremely proficient in processing and maintaining filing systems for all employees. I am highly skilled in assisting the department with various HR related activities which include maintaining and updating organisational charts on a regular basis, updating the departmentís information on the company website along with other HR programs including strategic planning activities.

I am a team player or can work well on my own initiative and I have an ability to pay strong attention to detail. My ability to exercise strong judgement in times of crises became the reason for many strong personal appraisals in my previous places of work. I possess both the confidence and skills required to represent my department and company as required.

Thank you for your consideration of this application and I look forward to having an interview with you soon.

Yours sincerely,
