A job confirmation letter is written for the purpose of informing a prospective employee of his confirmation for a position that he or she has been interviewed for. This letter is also required when confirming the status of a contractual/casual employee.
Confirmation letters basically include information of the position in question, the terms agreed on, and mention of some important company policies and details of joining. While there are no set rules on how any of these may be listed on a job confirmation letter, there is a certain lingo that one needs to follow in order to make the letter seem professional. You may want to mention a starting date, compensation and a summarized job description in a job confirmation letter along with welcoming the employee on board.
Two samples of a job confirmation are given below for your reference:
