Our team of specialist recruiters will get to know you, your work history and what is most important to you moving forward into your next role.

With so much talk surrounding covering letters particularly on the professional network, LinkedIn, we asked our recruiters their thoughts, here is what we discovered:


“I think it is important to focus on relevant strengths and positive work-related tasks, not making it too personal. I think it is also worth mentioning their current situation, i.e is the candidate looking for a new challenge or opportunity to develop their career?”

-        Claire French, Logistics & Freight Forwarding Specialist Recruiter


“I would say, certainly within my industry, the emphasis is more on personal profiles, and for my clients a personal profile is ‘the new covering letter’ I rarely get requests for official covering letters”

-        Eva Clark, Property Specialist Recruiter



What are your thoughts? As a hiring team, do you find value in covering letters? As a candidate, do you find covering letters support your job search?
