Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am writing with regard to the recent email I received from our company’s head office in New York. The email contained news regarding a six month management training programme at our head office. I would like to undertake this training.

I currently have 2 years of experience as an assistant manager, and I feel this programme will enable me to develop and sharpen my skills further. I will be able to have a broader perspective in the area of management once I complete this programme.

I will try to complete my current project before leaving for the course. Moreover, my colleague Rashmi has informed me that she will take over some of my duties during my absence. I can also work on the weekends during the six month period.

I can assure you that my current work will not be affected while I am away. Hence, I request you to kindly consider me for the programme and recommend my name to the head office for the same.

Yours faithfully,

Karthika Gopinath

You work for an international company, and would like to spend six months working in its head office in another country – Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to express my interest to work in Company’s HO in Los Angeles, USA for the next six months. I believe that working in the head office will enable me to gain exposure to other verticals of the business. Thus, it will benefit my career.

Please be assured that my absence will not hamper or raise any operational challenges in the office. My subordinate John has been working with me from more than a year now and I can assure you that he understands the complete process. He has agreed to fill in for me during my tenure in the Head office.

It would be great if you could help me get a transfer to the Head office and put in some good word about my work ethics to our management for making it possible.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Himanshu Handa
