Congratulations on your job offer! Even you've verbally accepted the role over the phone or face-to-face, it's a good idea to formally accept the job offer by putting it in writing in the form of a Job Acceptance Letter
.How to write a job offer acceptance letter
- A statement of thanks for the opportunity
- Acceptance of the job offer including the job role
- Details of the agree terms and conditions of employment (which should be noted in the offer letter)
- Confirmation of the date you can commence employment, including any holidays which you have already booked.
Ensure that you address the letter to the individual that offered you the position. Don't forget to put you contact address and telephone number, even if you think that the employer already has these details.
As with all letters to prospective employers, make sure that your letter is well written and does not contain spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. You may have already been offered the job, but you don't want your new employer to start reconsidering their decision at this early stage!Example Job Acceptance Letter
