    No, you DON'T need one for this purpose!!
    If there is info not in your CV then it should be there (I can only work with what I am given!)
    A cover letter is SPECIFIC to a particular job application and its function is to highlight the areas of expertise that you have that match up with their particular requirements.
    A general cover letter is not much use TBH.
