Dear {{Name}}, 

I hope this email reaches you well. Before getting into it, I want to reiterate that I love my job and I feel privileged to contribute as a {{POSITION}} at {{COMPANY}}. However, I am becoming concerned that my personal workload is becoming a little daunting—and I wanted to run a few ideas for some support by you. 

My current workload includes these responsibilities:





As you can see, with these responsibilities, along with weekly incidentals, I am left with little to no time to {{MANAGE CLIENTS, MOVE FORWARD, COLLECT DATA, ETC.}}. I believe that, with the help of an assistant or an additional {{POSITION}}, I can move this department forward successfully. 

I would love the opportunity to speak with you more at length about my ideas and how I think hiring some additional support would greatly benefit myself and {{COMPANY}} as a whole. 

Thank you for your time and consideration.
