    Hi Theo (hope you can help),
    I am currently in the process of completing a job application for a job that I really want and am unsure about the requirements etc. Basically I have to write the application form (which i understand) and complete a personal statement. It isn't stated that a letter should be included, but I would prefer to write a short letter at the start to introduce, and re-affirm my interest in the position.
    If a personal statement is being included within the pack, what else needs to be on the opening letter? Also, what is an executive summary? Do I have to include one, even if they have not asked for one?
    I am going for Primary jobs, if this helps with your answer at all.
