Dear Mr Smith

I am enclosing my CV in response to your advertisement for the post of Care Worker.

I am very interested in this position as it relates strongly to my vast experience in social care and also my general knowledge of the healthcare industry.

For the past two years I have been working as a care worker for my local health authority. During my employment I have learnt how to handle various medical and operational situations professionally and efficiently using my own knowledge and any available resources.

As can be seen from my CV, I possess all the necessary industry related certification, am CRB cleared and hold numerous relevant academic qualifications. I also possess a helpful attitude, good team working skills and am prepared to put in that extra effort which makes all of the difference.

The accompanying resume will give you an idea not only of my past achievements but also of my future potential for making a significant contribution to your company. I look forward very much to meeting with you in person to discuss this opening further.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Stevens

Dear Ms Gosling

Re: Disability Support Worker position

I am writing to apply for the position of Disability Support Worker at Uplift Community Services as advertised recently on

I am a caring, professional and experienced disability support worker with a Certificate IV in Community Services Work, four years of experience in a support role and a passion for improving the quality of life of disadvantaged individuals.

In my role as Disability Support Worker at Nelly Bay Community Services, I am responsible for caring for and supporting clients with physical and mental disabilities. This involves developing personalised support programs and managing various household and personal care tasks, including cooking, cleaning, shopping, administering medication and assisting with mobility, hygiene and feeding.

I also engage clients in various community access activities and nurture partnerships with community organisations and businesses to advocate for their needs and goals. For example, I successfully lobbied the local council to improve disabled access at local shopping centres.

Working at Nelly Bay has given me an even greater passion and determination to help support the needs and quality of life of the disabled. It has also helped me hone my verbal and non-verbal communication skills with culturally diverse clients and those for whom communication is challenging. I am a very patient person with great empathy and a genuine desire to help.

I have a current First Aid Certificate and Manual Handling certification. I also have a current driver’s licence and my own transport.

I have attached my resume and I look forward to discussing the position with you further.

Yours sincerely,
