Op! Thank you for the information.

Well structured and straight forward to the point.

On another note, Is the employer's address not supposed to be on the Left hand side?

Take note.
1. Yours Faithfully is the appropriate thing
2. Your own Address should be by the top right corner.
3. Heading should be Application for.......
Nice work though!...probably this is the latest style
