  • ask for his/her help in arranging it

Dear Mr Smith,

The purpose of this letter is to express my interest in working at the company’s head office in another country for a period of six months. I am writing to express my interest in the possibility of working at our company’s head office in the USA for the next six months. As an employee of our international company, I am excited about the prospect of gaining first-hand experience and knowledge of the company’s operations at our head office.

Working at the head office would provide me with a unique opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues and contribute to the success of the company in a new environment. Additionally, I believe that this experience would enable me to develop new skills and perspectives that I can bring back to my current role and benefit our team.

In terms of my work, while I am away, I have already taken the necessary steps to ensure a smooth transition. I have discussed my responsibilities and workload with my team members, and we have identified specific tasks that can be delegated to other colleagues while I am away. Furthermore, I will be available to communicate with my team via email and video conferencing to ensure that any pressing issues are addressed in a timely manner.

I would be grateful if you could provide guidance on the necessary steps I need to take to secure this opportunity. I am available to discuss this matter further and answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for considering my request.

Yours sincerely,
