Does this sound too desperate?

I'm applying for a job I really want.

Should I type the following line at the end of my cover letter:

"I am willing to be flexible with regards to hours and to be adaptable to suit the company's needs at all times"

Its the type of job where this would be hugely beneficial but would it sound too desperate to state it ??

Doesn't sound desperate to me - you're just trying to make your application stand out. Nothing wrong in that x

I don't think it sounds desperate. Good luck

Doesn't sound desperate. A person really wanting a job is a good reason to choose that person for the job.

But be sure that you genuinely ARE willing to be flexible! I might remove "at all times" as it suggests they can call you at 2am...

I think I'd leave "at all times" off, the rest sounds very positive and committed. Good luck.
