Diligent Bank Limited has offered you the position of Controller in their Treasury Division. Competition for the position was intense, and you have received the letter of appointment after careful consideration of your credentials by the management. You have been asked to report to the Director of Human Relations on 20 February 2021 and assume responsibilities. However, it would not be possible for you to report on the stated date as you have to attend to certain personal matters.
Write a letter to the Director of Human Relations stating that you may be allowed to report on 05 March 2014 and cite reasons for your request. The letter should carry a polite tone, and the reason for your request should be significant to elicit a positive response.
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to take the position of Controller in the Treasury Division.
It is an honor to become a Diligent Bank Limited member, and I will make all efforts for the company's prosperity.
I would like to inform you that I am not able to assume responsibilities on 20 February 2021 due to personal matters.
I can report to you on 05 March if that would be suitable for you.
Would you be so kind as to let me know if such an option is suitable for you.
I am looking forward to your reply. Thank you for your consideration.
