    I would very be happy

    Is the word order correct in written language - a letter accompanying a CV?

    I would very be happy to work for you

    If it's an error, it's rather common: just google "to very be" or "would very be". I have the sensation instead, that it could be British, and perhaps a bit archaic. Opinions? If a reference could be found, I'd really be grateful. (Was this an error now?)

    I would be very happy to work for you - grammatically correct, especially if you have to write a formal letter.
    In my opinion would very be happy is neither correct word oder nor common in British English

    I would be very happy to work for you.

    This is the proper word order in both American and British English.

    However, I would probably not say this when accepting a job. I would suggest that this is a bit better.

    I look forward to working for you.
