Cover letter example for a HR Assistant position. Amend as suitable and start using it for your job applications.HR Assistant Cover Letter Example
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, I’d 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 faithfullyHR Officer Covering Letter

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.
