Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter with reference to an advertisement in the Australian magazine, Around Australia, for someone to live with your family for six months and look after your six-year-old child. I would like to be considered for the job vacancy.

I am planning to migrate to Australia. I have completed the language proficiency test and my documents are under processing for the immigration procedures. Therefore, I suppose a job offer from Australia would be an added advantage for my profile. I am a qualified healthcare professional with over three years of experience working in a multispecialty hospital in India. Moreover, during the initial months of my career I had worked in a forum to take care for foster children. So, I know how to deal with young children and I believe that  I would be a suitable candidate for the position.

If you consider my application, I would like to spend my spare time doing a bridge course in nursing as it will help me to get a job in a hospital in Australia. Please find the attached proof of qualifications.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Devika Panicker
