Application for the role of Building Surveyor
I would like to apply for the role of Building Surveyor that you have advertised in (where) and (when).
I qualified from (which university and when) as a Surveyor and am now looking to begin my career as a Surveyor. I have had some experience during my degree and enjoyed the different people that I met in differing situations from regular sites and surveying the area to dealing with issues with neighbours and boundary issues.
I am looking forward to beginning my career as a Surveyor and have done a lot of research into the role and feel that with my excellent communication skills I will be able to relate well to the clients and trades people alike. I will be able to provide advice to my clients and help to give them support if they have legal problems etc.
I have enclosed my CV which details my qualifications and experience. If you have any questions relating to these experiences, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
