I have just seen the perfect job advertised for me.

It asks youto email requesting further info or an application pack but I'm no sure how to word it so am seeking advice as this will be the first impression I make and I want it to be good!

Do I put my address on the email or not? Do I offer any info about myself or save that for when I apply?

Thanks in advance grin
