If you are seeking to be a HR Analyst then you will need a good combination of both HR skills and also analysis skills. A HR Analyst will look at the facts and figures and analyse these with a view to improving them and determining what a business needs to do in order to improve upon the results of the analysis. This could be analysis about employee information, perhaps retention and recruitment information or could be more nitty gritty on costs per department etc.

Application for the role of HR Analyst
I would like to apply for the position of HR Analyst that you are recruiting for within your company that I have seen advertised in (which publication and when).
I began my career as an Analyst and studied in this area also. After working as an analyst studying figures and details for a logistics business I got involved in the people side a lot more which inspired me to train to work in HR as an HR analyst.
I have now completed my studies and enjoy both HR and being an analyst equally and as I am good with numbers it seems a good career choice for me to be analysing useful figures to help HR Managers make decisions that affect staff and the business as a whole.
I am a confident person who feels that I have excellent communication skills and an ability to deal with people in a calm and positive manner. I am able to work on my own initiative and due to the nature of my work must work on my own a lot of the time but I am also able to work with others.
Please find enclosed my CV for your perusal. Should you have any questions about my skills and 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 and I look forward to hearing from you.
