When applying for roles as a D-level or C-suite executive, many people pour all their energies into their CV and often end up neglecting their cover letter. No longer a mere formality, a stellar cover letter can, in fact, be the difference between success and rejection.

Join our upcoming 45-minute webinar ‘How to Craft a Winning Cover Letter’ to get insight, tips and tools to ensure recruiters will be placing you on the interview list.

The session will be hosted by our CV Specialist, Brendan Gurrie, who has helped to expertly craft bespoke cover letters for hundreds of In Touch members. Brendan will explore how a great cover letter should complement your tailored CV. It must both pique a recruiter’s interest and adds an extra dimension to your resume.

During the webinar, Brendan will share his expert knowledge, looking at the dos and don’ts of cover letter writing, revealing the common mistakes many people make and explaining how to ensure you maximise the potential of your one-page pitch.

The following topics will be covered during the session:

- Why a cover letter counts
- Back to Basics - don’t let silly mistakes ruin your chances
- Research - make sure you know the company and how to sell yourself to them
- Crafting the Cover Letter - what you must include to guarantee success

  • Pension Accounting Deficit or Surplus? Why it's irrelevant? Jun 18 2019 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Richard Farr - Managing Director, Lincoln Pensions
    The calculation of the true pension deficit is not straightforward and is certainly not the one that regularly appears in the accounts. There are a number of different approaches and whichever approach you choose will give you a different pension risk perspective. What we can say, with regard to pensions, is that your company accounts, do not give a true and fair view.

    Warning: This is not an accounting webinar. We will demonstrate why corporate accounts are misleading and what the real question to ask should be - Is the covenant strong enough to underwrite the risk? By listening to this webinar and understanding the integration between covenant, funding and investment, companies may better prepare themselves for inevitable storms ahead.

    Who should attend?
    Senior Executives of businesses that have defined benefit pension schemes.

    What are the benefits:
    1. To better understand your actual defined benefit (DB) pension risk
    2. To be able to challenge your current pension advisors
    3. To be able to ask for more relevant information and ask the right questions
    4. Drive forward a better pension risk management agenda from a C suite perspective.
