Dear Theo, Bizarrely after my question on Executive Summaries last week, an internal post has just come up at my current school and I am absolutely desperate to be appointed and think I am the right person for the role. My questions are three-fold (the job is also advertised for external applicants). 1) A very minor question but do I address my letter to the formal name of my Head (e.g. Dear Mr..) or, as I know him well and currently refer to him by his first name, do I do so in the letter (e.g. Dear Theo)? 2) I think I know the answer to this (!!) but do I still do an executive summary? 3) I already manage a large team. This new role involves managing others and the person spec identifies the need to 'create positive working relationships with X and X' - should I mention in my letter that I already have very positive working relationships with these people? Or am I best to apply (as I've read in your previous posts) completely as if I was an external candidate? I suppose this applies to a few things in the person spec (e.g. Working towards achieving the aims of X school) so how much am I allowed to say I already do these things? Thanks in advance!
