Subject: Internal transfer
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am writing to you at head office to request an internal transfer, my current position as (indicate). I wish to relocate to the (place) in order to be nearer to my family, and I am informed that you are short staffed in the said area.
I would therefore appreciate an internal transfer, to a position of equal standing. Please consider my application carefully, as I feel that I would also like to transfer to a more demanding position within a big city, where i can use my training and skills to their full potential.
