Dear Theo - Covering Letter

    Dear Theo,
    For the job I am currently applying for I have to complete a standard CES application form and a 'seperate statement in support'.
    2) Is this a letter of application or a personal statement?
    2) At the moment I have written it as a personal statement to submit alongside the job application form (& an executive summary!). Thus according to your advice I need to write a covering letter. What should this include and how long should it be?
    Thanks in advance for your support and advice [​IMG]

    Kind regards,
  2. TheoGriff
