Do I need a cover letter?

If you are applying for a role using a CV only, it's a good idea to also include a cover letter or email to sell your marketable skills and help employers differentiate you. Guidance on these topics is available on applications and recruitment Canvas course, Apply Yourself. You can also access a two page Quick Guide on how to draft a cover letter on the Cover Letters section of our website as well as lots of related content. We also run regular workshops on various aspects of the recruitment process including cover letters - please check the workshops section of our website for more information about upcoming sessions.

If you have written a draft you can send it to us for feedback using the 'Contact Us' button below. Please attach your cover letter and also let us know what you're applying for. We'll then aim to return feedback to you within five working days.
