    relief assistant ?

    Hello, is this sentence OK?

    I am the Manager's relief assistant for the next two weeks as his assistant is away on holidays. I have attached some forms for your signature. Please complete and return them to our office.

    Re: relief assistant ?

    I would not capitalize "manager" (in fact, I'd use his name, but that's another issue) and I would insert "them" after the word "complete." Please complete them and return them to our office. (Whose office? Do you share an office with the manager?)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
