Write a letter to apply for a job as a caregiver

Dear Sir/ Madam My name is Ann ( Do Thi Hang Nga), I am looking for a part-time job as a caregiver in Christchurch. After having my
first
baby
last
year, I have decided to change my career from chef to be a caregiver. With the passion for helping others, patience and taking good
care
in detail, I believe that I can contribute to….. Most of my bosses that I worked with before were very happy with my performance at work, due to my hard-working, responsible, honest and respectful attitude. After being working in New Zealand for more than 7 years with different jobs, from orchards to factories and hospitality, I gained the ability to adopt new skills quickly when starting working in any kind of job.
Moreover
, with the experience of taking
care
of my 11-month-old baby, I am confident to tackle the tasks at your rest home after training. Back in Vietnam, I learned the value of helping people at an abbey for a year after graduating from University. My sister and one of my close friends are working as a caregiver in Christchurch, so I understand most of the job characters at a rest home. I am living at Colwyn street, Bryndwr in Christchurch, so it is very close to your rest home. I hope that I can have a chance to take
care
of the elderly in my neighbourhood. If you need any more information from me, please let me know, it would be my pleasure to exchange more details with you at your convenient time. As a disciple of the convent, I had the opportunity to learn different soft skills, gain knowledge about the value of love and taking
care
of others. At the same time, I visited institutions for the elderly, the disabled and orphans. Being in each place for only a day, I experienced the hard lives that people are facing every day, had a chance to take
care
of them.

Word Count

IELTS says that you should write a minimum of 150 words in writing task 1. If you go under word count you will lose marks in task response.

A very long letter will not give you a higher band score.

Aim for between 160 to 190 words in writing task 1. This will ensure a concise letter and will be realistic in terms of time management. You have only 20 minutes to write the letter and you need around 5 minutes of planning time, so you will not be able to write a long letter in 15 minutes.
