Sample cover letter for Internship position at Betfair


Customer Service Officer

Dear Sir,

I am very interested in your advertised position of Customer Service Officer, which I came across on the University jobs Database. I have an economics and business background, as I completed my degree in Economics at the end of last year, and am currently working 1-2 days a week with a Philanthropic foundation. As a result, I am relatively flexible with my availability to work and readily available for weekend/evening work as required. 

Through my internships and part-time work I have gained valuable experiences in working in a dynamic office environment – undertaking reception duties, filing, mail management, typing, creating databases, organising meetings, data research and summarising data;and have a range of administrative skills and experiences to match the position described. I have hands-on experience with a range of office programs including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (on both PC’s and Mac’s), as well as strong data processing abilities.

Additionally, my 3 years spent in retail roles have developed practical skills in communicating and engaging with people, and I’m able to assist efficiently and in a friendly manner to complete assigned tasks - both in person and on the phone.

I am an eager and hardworking individual who is looking for an opportunity to apply my customer care skills in a practical and valuable manner. I have attached my resume, which I hope you will consider, and I look forward to meeting with you to discuss the position further.

Yours sincerely,
