Naseer, you failed to introduce the recommender within the body of the letter. That should be part of the opening statement. He must first introduce himself, his position, and the organization that you both work for. Only after he introduces himself should he indicate that he is recommending you for the program based upon the length of time that he has observed you as a worker in the organization. I don't really find this to be a strong letter of recommendation because it contains run of the mill information. There is nothing exceptional about your review of your work (I know you wrote this and you still could not find anything exemplary to say about yourself to make your recommendation stand out). Your information is just basic and could apply to any applicant. A recommender should be able to highlight something exceptional about you as a worker under his supervision. Why does he think you will make for an exceptional candidate? Was there a difficult problem that you resolved? Did you gain the attention of the other bosses that helped to elevate your status as a worker? What is it about your work skills, traits, and abilities that might set you apart from the other applicants? There is no sense of that in this essay and since this is for Chevening, you need to make sure that your information stands out and can compete with the other recommendation letters that will be submitted.
