Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a cover letter?

Answer:

It is always a good idea to include a cover letter as this strengthens your application by getting the recruiter’s attention.

You can show how motivated you are to work for the company by researching them thoroughly and referring to what you have found. You should also highlight sections of your CV/application form which particularly show how you would be an ideal candidate for the role and that organisation.
