Congratulations on landing that great new job. Now that your new employer has formally made an offer of employment to you, it’s time you write a Job Acceptance Letter. An Acceptance letter is written to formally communicate your intent of accepting the offer or proposal to work you the new organisation. Usually employers require you to respond within a specified time period and also expect you to accept the terms of employment such as the compensation and job title formally.
While you send your acceptance, it’s also important to let your employer know your tentative date of joining and whether you would require any relocation assistance to help you ease into your new role. And of course don’t forget to thank your hiring managers and the recruitment team for helping you through the process.
Below is a sample job acceptance letter for your reference.
