An office clerk’s main responsibility is to manage an office’s clerical duties along with some administrative and accounting functions. He may be asked to take phone calls, greet visitors, manage mail, collect and distribute paperwork and operate office equipment as needed. If your office clerk has just resigned and you need to write a reference letter for him and have no idea how to go about it, you have come to the right place.

Here is a sample reference letter for an office clerk that you can take ideas from.

To Whom It May Concern

It is an absolute honor to write this reference letter for Thomas Hanks who worked as an Office Clerk with ABC Company for 5 years. During the time that Thomas has spent with our company, we have found him to be extremely professional who had a keen eye for detail.

Thomas has always been great to work with; when he joined all those years ago, we did not teach him much as it seemed that he was a trained office clerk even before he joined us – even though this was his first job. He has this ability to take complex instructions and work on them with absolute ease. He is extremely well organized and service oriented with a great ability to provide all kinds of advanced clerical, administrative and bookkeeping duties in a professional manner.

While we all feel sad to see him leave us, we wish him the best of luck for all this future endeavors.
