Dear Mr. Jones,

I’m writing to reply to your advertisement for secretaries. I heard about you from a friend of mine, Jenny Mansfield, which worked with you a few years ago in the sales department.

I would be interested in applying for a full-time post. I’m quite experienced in secretarial work and would have had few difficulty with the duties the current work involves. I think I’m quite skilled at word­processing. I also have wide experience of dealing with clients.

I enclose the reference from my previous employee and copies of my certificates. I’m available for the interview in any time that suits you.

Look forward to hear from you.

Yours, Ann Dale
