Cover Letter for Phlebotomist
Application for a Phlebotomist (ref – if known)
I have recently seen your advert for a Phlebotomist which was advertised in (where) when) and I would like to apply for this role.
I am first aid trained and I have researched the role and I am very interested in training to become a Phlebotomist. I understand that in my role I will be expected to understand the strict codes of practice, follow the health and safety procedures very carefully and learn everything there is to know about blood sampling.
I have a good general education with good GCSE results and I have had experience in a hospital department previously and feel that I have a good background in customer services and dealing with patients and helping them at sometimes stressful and distressing times.
I am a very methodical worker and have always kept accurate records both manually and on a computer database and I feel that I am very organised when it comes to dealing with paperwork.
I am able to work whatever shift patterns are needed and am very keen to begin training and do some qualifications to enable me to be a qualified Phlebotomist.
I have enclosed my CV for you to go through. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have and am able to bring my GCSE records in for you to look at.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you in due course.
