You would normally add a covering letter to the application form perhaps informing candidates when they may be invited for interview or how they will know whether or not they have been selected to be interviewed.

Below is an example of a letter that may be sent to a potential Personal Assistant.

Dear (Applicant's Name)

Re: Application for post of Personal Assistant to Disabled Person

Thank you for your interest in the above post.

Please find enclosed a job description, person specification and application form.

Only candidates who have been selected for interview will be contacted. If you have not received an invitation to attend an interview within four weeks of the closing date, you may assume that your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely
