I have recently been writing up and updating my current resume. However, I found a role that requires me to write a "supporting statement" to be submitted alongside my CV.
I'm unsure as to what exactly this is, I've heard of supporting statements within the context of academia- however, I've never come across the term when referring to a job.
Of course I could be overthinking this, and it could basically just be the cover letter! However, if it was, it would be a cover letter and not a supporting statement.
I've asked advice from others, and they have given me mixed responses from- "its a bit like a personal statement" to its a "cover letter".
The reason I ask is because I am unsure as to how to approach writing it- content and structure.
Anybody lend a hand?
