Try not forgetting to attach your relevant documents. The above cover letter is a sample for writing an enumerator job vacancy.

In the case of Content and ICT supervisors, replace the Ref number and change the second address and the locations not unless you are from Siaya County.

If you are from Kiambu county for instance, then indicate it in your letter.
