Starting your correspondence

As with almost all correspondence in English, if you can start with a 'Thank you' then this is what we would always recommend! Responding to a job offer is, of course, a perfect opportunity to begin with those two words, as you will wish to show your gratitude for the offer that has been made, whatever your final decision on it may be. The degree of formality you use will depend on your relationship with the person who has written, who may have been a stranger until recently or may be someone you have known for some time, but nevertheless any letter dealing with a job offer should be professional and should also be brief - there is no need to go into raptures and write a long missive!:

  • Dear Mr Briggs Thank you for your letter of 28 June regarding the position of P A to your C E O...
  • Dear Simon Thank you for accepting me for the role of PA to your C E O ...

Which way have you decided?

The next step is to make your intentions quite clear. This information is crucial and must be very clearly communicated right at the start of your writing. Whatever details you need to include, a 'yes' or 'no' is what the reader will be looking for first, so don't' make it difficult to find!
