This is a job offer email template you can use when you have landed your perfect candidate and want to officially offer them a position. You can customize your email to include as many details as you think your candidate will want to know before making up their mind. You can also use our tutorial to get an idea of how to write a standout job offer email.
Your email’s subject line cannot leave your candidate guessing. It should clearly communicate that you’re offering them a job. Make sure your message includes all the most important information: position details (job title, working hours, department and manager), contract length (if applicable) and salary details (including benefits.) You may consider attaching useful documents, like company policies and compensation plan or a copy with the employment terms that your candidate needs to sign, should they accept your offer. Don’t forget to set a specific timeframe for when you would like to get your candidate’s final response.
