Letter Writing Sample - Official Communication 

IELTS Band 9 Letter
Official Letter Sample

You successfully passed a job interview. You are expected to start on November 15, but you will not be available on that date. Task: Write a letter to your new boss, explaining your situation, expressing your concern and suggesting a solution. 

Dear Mr. Maximus,

I am Kevin Canwate, recently appointed as Senior Electrical Technician at your firm, slated to start at the Tallahassee branch on November 15.

I regret to inform you that I have failed in securing an early release from my current contract owing to an unforeseen mishap.  The last project we were working on had an accident on-site due to a lightning strike. The resulting mess will now have to go through insurance claims and as the 'Technician Incharge' of the operation, I will have to stay put until due process is completed. 

Eager as I am to commence work at your esteemed firm, I would be remiss to quit my current project amidst such chaos. My superiors here are aware of the situation and have extended their full cooperation to expedite the process. I am hopeful of being relieved from my position by the third week of November. 

I can make up for the lost time by contracting my training period from four weeks to three. Alternatively, I can also work on weekends for the first four weeks.

I hope you understand my predicament and extend my joining date by a week.

Please find enclosed, clippings of newspaper reports about the incident as well as copies of the insurance claims filed. 

Kevin Canwate
