Dear Ms Hamilton

Re: Building Surveyor position, Ref: SY507

I am writing to express my interest in the Building Surveyor position advertised on

I am currently working as an assistant surveyor for Building & Land Surveyors, where I have gained valuable experience working on both small-scale and large-scale projects, which have fuelled my interest in building surveying. During this time I have also completed my honours year at university as well as my surveying certification.

Whilst working for Building & Land Surveyors I was made responsible for coordinating and overseeing small projects for regular clients. Through this experience I have learned the importance of quality customer service, and have gained strong communication skills. I also initiated and helped implement more efficient data collection procedures, which were quickly adopted throughout the company and helped improve efficiency. Having hands-on experience has also strengthened my knowledge of current acts and regulations.

In the position of field assistant I helped both building and land surveyors in assessing construction plans, undertake inspections, as well as assisting with code development. I also have a full, clean driver’s licence.
Working individually on projects has equipped me with good problem-solving and decision-making skills, which in turn has given me competence in all aspects of land surveying, including building surveying. I am also a valuable team player and enjoy collaborating on projects.

I believe the aforementioned skills, combined with my experience and qualifications, would enable me to make a significant contribution to your organisation. I have enclosed a copy of my CV for your consideration. I thank you for your time and look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,
