'Just thought I would drop you a line to let you know that (company) have officially taken me on after my probation.
I just wanted to say that I am sorry Dan as I don't think I expressed how grateful I am for your help in getting me the opportunity to work at such a great company. Cathedral were by far the best agency I have dealt with.'
