Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mr. Lennon,

I am writing to request a transfer to the head office in Canada for six months. I am aware that David from the Marketing team has already moved to Canada to lend his expertise to the Huggies advertisement portfolio.

Let me explain my situation in more detail. Since we have limited exposure to the brand portfolios we handle, I would like to move to the Canadian office for a short period of 6 months to expand my knowledge on how global brands work. This will enhance my skills and as a senior in the team, I believe it is my responsibility to continuously train our team members and ensure that their learning is not restricted.

While I am away, I have requested Jade to take over my work and make sure that the team is working to the best of their capabilities.

I would request you to speak to Scott to arrange my transfer and advise the managers in Canada as well.

Looking forward to your response

Yours sincerely

Rashi Khindri


Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to express my desire to work in the London branch of our office for the upcoming six months.

As you know our latest silicon chip, which I will be working on during the next six months, is designed in the London branch. To put the work of testing and validation of this chip on the fast track, it is extremely important for me to work with the team that designed it. That is why I am requesting you to send me to our London headquarters from June 2020 to December 2020.

I completed most of my work here and also signed-off the previous project. Currently, I am going through the planning phase of the new project which can be done remotely from the computer; hence, I can do my work with the help of computer even from London. Therefore, there would be no loss of productivity for the company.

Apart from this, I need to book the flight tickets and arrange necessary documents for the work VISA. As I am going for the company work, could you please help me with these? Moreover, I need my company laptop for doing the remaining work, kindly approve my request to take the laptop with me.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Amrit

    Hi Karan,
    I hope you are hale and hearty. I am writing to a response to your letter in which you asked about the suggestions of the places for the older people. Well, you know that Delhi is a very beautiful city and it is known for its heritage sights and old monuments.
    The first place which comes to my mind to suggest your parents is Akshardham Temple which is the most popular destination in Delhi. Since, your parents are very religious people, therefore, they would definitely like this place.
    Secondly, this place is very near to my home and I would insist you to please let your parents stay at my place. I live alone in my flat and I would be very happy to meet and host your parents as my guest. Moreover, I also have access to metro at a distance of a few minutes from my home. So, your parents can visit some other places like India Gate, Red Fort etc through Delhi metro without any inconvenience.
    I am really looking forward to meeting your parents personally.
    Regards,
    Shubham

    Dear Sir,
    I am writing this letter to express my interest with regards to work in the head office in New York location for six months.
    Last month, I have applied for a weekend investment banking executive course in New York. This is the 6 months extensive weekend course and fortunately, I am selected for the same course. This course would help me to set up and install artificial intelligence in the operation for our company which would help in increasing the efficacy of the organization.
    Moreover, I have checked the internal jobs portal of our company and there is a vacancy of investment analyst at the New York location. If I get clearance from you, I would not get any difficulty to get this position.
    I have already given training to all my colleagues and juniors of my part of work and I have already completed my all ongoing projects. In future, if my team ever gets any problem related to the operations, I will always provide my assistance over the mail and skype.
    I hope you will consider my request and allow me to get transfer to New York location.
    Regards,
    Shubham
