Offer of Employment Letter

An Offer of Employment Letter is used when an employer would like to offer a potential employee a position with their business. Employment offer letters are used widely across all industries and are very prominently used to offer professional positions. It is common practice among many employers to first issue a verbal offer of employment which will then be followed up by a official written offer. However, some employers may wish to simply issue a written offer where multiple candidates have been interviewed or applied for the position on offer.

The Offer of Employment Letter will include valuable information about the position that is on offer in order to aid the potential employee with their decision to accept or decline the offer. There may be many details within the letter which previously have not been disclosed to the potential employee and many of them may have been communicated already however the letter will act as a formal confirmation of this. An Offer of Employment Letter is often viewed as a formal beginning to the relationship between an employer and an employee.


How to use this document

This document should be used when an employer wants to communicate a formal offer of employment to a job applicant. This document can be altered to reflect all necessary information which the employer would like to include within the letter. It is typical for a letter like this to include information on:

  • term of the employment;
  • the location where the employee will be expected to work from;
  • annual leave entitlement; and
  • compensation.

Where it is applicable there will be the option to include information on any employee benefit schemes which may be offered to employees of the business. Where a position has been offered to a candidate conditionally on the premise of achieving certain qualifications, or any other relevant conditions, these can be included within this document also.


Applicable law

There is no legal requirement for a job offer to be in writing. However, it has become standard practice among most employers to issue an official letter so as to adequately keep records of their employment relationship with employees. It is customary that offer letters will include the most important and most basic details of the job being offered.
