Cover Letter Suggestion

If possible, keep your covering letter to a single page. Too much information, especially if it is not relevant to the job, may detract from the letter. Your statement addressing the selection criteria is the place to give more detailed information about yourself and your ability to do the job.

What should your cover letter include?

  • Your personal/ contact details
  • The date
  • A salutation/greeting
  • How you heard about the job/company
  • Why you believe you would be an asset to the team
  • How you will follow up
  • A closing/signature
