An internal post has come up which I am interested in. The application istructions are to submitt and expression of interest by email including reasons why you want the job and what you would bring to the role.
How long should it be?
I was thinking a couple of paragraphs. Should it be longer? A typed side fo A4 maybe?
<Never done this before...feeling quite nervous...god help me if get selected for interview>
Personally I'd ignore the fact that it's called an 'expression of interest' and write a decent supporting statement, outlining how you meet all the criteria on the person spec and what you would bring to the role. Probably a side of A4 at least, as MissisB says. Don't waffle though.
Wow, really - a side of A4? I would have put a sentence confirming that I was interested, then a paragraph for why I want the job and paragraph for what I could bring to the role, with a closing statement saying something like, 'look forward to discussing this opportunity further with you'.
