Other Services

Cover Letter


Cover letters can be key to being selected for interviews; they enable you to really target your skills and experience to the role you are applying for and show the employer what you have to offer them. I will write you a cover letter that is well presented, well structured and that ties in with the CV written for you, in terms of layout and style.

Please note I only offer this service if you are having a CV written by me.
