Dear Mr Hodgkins 

I have an interview for the Assistant Manager’s position scheduled for next Thursday, 25 March at 9.30am. 

Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the interview at this time, as I have to give a presentation at an important council meeting between 9:00am and 12:00pm. I am unable to change the time of the meeting.  

I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 

I am still eager to be interviewed for this position, and would be very grateful if the time of my interview could be changed. I am available any time on the afternoon of Thursday 25 March, or the following day, Friday 26 March. If an alternative time is available, I can be contacted by telephone on 02 9949 6739.  

Once again, I apologise for any inconvenience, and hope it is still possible to reschedule the interview. I am truly interested in this position.

Yours sincerely

Mirko Bendall
