Application for the role of HR Generalist
I would like to apply for the role of HR Generalist which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I have worked in a HR role for (how many years) and I am looking to do my CIPD qualification in the future to ensure that I do whatever learning and qualifications I can to improve my role. I have done a mixture of HR roles from taking minutes in disciplinary hearings to updating policies and procedures, writing offer letters, helping with inductions, planning training and events etc.
I like the variety of my role and like to keep up to date with the changing times in the world of HR. I enjoy working with other people and like to be a part of ensuring the staff and Managers are happy within a company. I like coming up with new incentives and different things to set companies apart and make them attractive to new employees in periods of growth.
I am exceptionally organised and pay great attention to detail in my work. I make lists of what I am required to do each day and wherever possible try to ensure that this gets done.
I have enclosed my up to date CV which shows in detail the previous work experience that I have had. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
