I am writing to request your permission for me to be temporarily transferred to our firm’s head office in Toronto for a period of 6 months.
Our company’s head office in Canada has a variety of training programs from experts of our domain for newer technologies that I am not familiar with. On completing these programs, I would have solidified my concepts and have a complete understanding of our specialized field.
While I am working abroad, I will handle most of my responsibilities remotely over the internet and those tasks that cannot be done without my physical presence, I will hand over to my colleague Ms. Grace. I will assure you that none of my work will go pending and I will be able to meet our targets the same as before.
It would be really appreciated if you could recommend me to the board of directors to facilitate my special request. After I have returned, our branch would be benefited from the knowledge I have gained and this will certainly improve the performance and keep us on the cutting edge.
Thank you in advance for all your help and support.

Dear Mr. Jones,
I am writing this letter to request you to allow me to work at our company’s headquarters in Alberta, Canada for the next six months. I will be of immense help after
My most of the clients reside there and I will be able to help them more personally if I stay there and carry on my task. Moreover, the team is working on a project based on cutting edges which will be of great support if we would implement that in our company as well. I already have worked in each department of ours and would like to extend my knowledge in this field which ultimately will be significant for our company’s growth.
The project we are working on has been finished by me and rest of the part will be covered by my other team members. Also Mrs. Smith, my colleague has assisted me each time in the past, so I will collaborate with her to get all the task done and on weekends I will be able to manage sufficient time for my work.
I would be greatly obliged if you could arrange my accommodation in the company’s guest house in Alberta and talk to our seniors regarding my stay as this is once in a lifetime opportunity for me and I do not want to let it go off.
I am looking forward to a positive response. Thanks for your help and support.

Dear Miss Haina,
I am writing to you as want to make a request for a temporary job transfer for me from Toronto to Newyork (USA) our head office for a period of six months.
My younger sister who has been studying journalism in Newyork university from last 4 years. This year suppose to be her final year and her exams are suppose to be held in december but unfortunately she met with an accident and there is a major fracture in her backbone. My sister can not travel back here as it’s going to take a long time in this treatment also she doesn’t want to compromise with her studies as it’s her 4 years hard work and her career on stake. She needs my help to take care of her during this tough time hence i am requesting for a six month transfer to our headoffice.
Our headoffice in newyork is very much close by the house my sister stays in and it will be very easy for me to join office everyday and in between i can also take care of my sister and can help her in such difficult time. I have explained responsibilities here to Mr. Xavier who is very much willing to help me in this period if at all needed anything he will represent on my behalf physically while i will be available online from our headoffice and also from home.
Looking forward for your extended help and support in this matter. Hope to get an approval from you soon.

I am interested to move on to the country where the head office is located. To gain more knowledge i would like to work there.
Since it is my dream country, I am desperately interested to work from the head office. I’ll be getting more exposure while working with different people. I can learn advanced technologies to enhance my career. I’m interested to do certification related to data science which is available only in the head office.
If I move to the head office, it will be easier for me to communicate with the clients. Our team is facing the delay whenever we have issue. As a representative it will be easier for me to be a bridge between the client and the team.
I request you to do a favour for me to work from the head office for the next six months. Expecting a forward move from you.

Dear Mr. Brown,
I am writing this letter request you to get me to transfer for six months in our headquarter in London.
One of my colleagues had been there and he attended a new training program from head office which has improved his performance and polished his skills. So, I also have the gusto to enroll myself in excellent training which can my enhance abilities to work.
I can set up my work remotely because my job profile demands virtually assistance so that I would be able to work from there on weekends and simultaneously complete my training on the other side. Though in case of any urgent requirement one of my colleagues Mr. Williams will take charge of that and I will assist him with clarification if needed.
I request you to please put forward my application to the boss and kindly convince him of my special request because I do not want to miss this splendid opportunity which usually comes once in a while.
I am looking forward for hear from you soon and ae for a positive answer from your side.
