Example cover letters


Below you will find a selection of cover letters. Some are anonymised versions of real cover letters while others have been created by Careers Consultants. These are to be used as samples only and are not perfect examples. They are designed to give you ideas of how your letter could be structured. See our guide on how to write CVs & cover letters for further advice.

Please note:

  • you should tailor your cover letter to the organisation and job description each time you apply
  • you should include why the role interests you, why the company interests you and why you are a good candidate for the job
  • any names or achievements used in the samples that reflect real individuals are purely coincidental.
