Application for Midwife
I have seen that you are recruiting for a Midwife at (where) and I would like to apply for this post.
I am a qualified Midwife and I qualified in (what year and where) and I have been working (where doing what – yes Midwife but specify your skills).
I thoroughly enjoy the role of a Midwife, from dealing with ladies when they find out they are pregnant right until they are discharged when the baby is here and doing well and to be transferred over to the health visiting team instead.
Having a baby is a very precious and vulnerable time for women and I feel that with my kind and caring nature I can make a difference to how they are feeling at this time and provide support when they need it the most.
I enjoy seeing that first moment that a baby is brought into the world and sharing that special time with the parents is very warming.
As well as my patient and calm nature I am also very organised and thorough in my work and am able to complete paperwork efficiently and accurately according to guidelines we need to follow. I also realise that the role of a midwife is not a 9-5 role and that you need to be on call at certain points and I am more than happy to do this to support my patients as best as I can.
I have enclosed a copy of my latest CV detailing my previous experiences. Should you be interested in my skills and experiences please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck with writing your application letter.
