Application for the role of Sexual Health adviser
I would like to apply for the role of Sexual Health Adviser as I have seen advertised in (where and when).
I have been advising on health issues for (how long and what about) and more recently I have done some training in sexual health and incorporating that into the services we provide. I now would like to do this role full time and am very interested in your role.
I have been used to advising young teenagers who have maybe already had children and looking to use contraception from now on, adults who have made mistakes and need to have some tests done and advice for the future. I like to help these people and want to make sure that they don’t feel as bad as they feel when they come to see me and can turn their lives around if they have made a previous mistake. I have also had some involvement with people with HIV and helping them with their medication.
I have enclosed my CV for your consideration. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know 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.
I look forward to hearing from you.
