Dear Mr. Brown,
I came across your vacancy for a School Social Worker, and would like to apply for this position.
I believe that the key to a young person’s future is a high quality education. Because of this I go out of my way to address issues or concerns raised by parents, pupils and teachers.
My accumulated experiences enable me to act as a role model to promote the school’s ethos and vision both within and to the wider community. One of the key talents that I can bring to your school is my ability to analyse and think through difficult cases. I can act as a key driver in pushing forward plans to deliver high quality, integrated, innovative and social services to school children. Aside from this and on a more personal note I am an approachable and friendly individual who can quickly break the ice and become friends with young people I have just met.
As my attached CV clearly demonstrates I have a track record of supporting and enabling people to live the life they choose, to make their own choices and to express themselves and live as independently as possible.
For the last two years I have been employed by, where I am involved in working closely with a multi-disciplinary team to provide a coordinated service which achieves positive outcomes for those young people who need it.
Further to the above, as superb communicator I find it easy to develop positive relationships with school staff, students and their families.
At the moment my ambition is to join a organisation like yours that has a reputation for supporting its staff through regular supervisions and is passionate about developing employees through training, mentoring and coaching. To this end I very much hope that you will look favourably upon my application, and I eagerly await to hear back from you as regards an interview.
