So you’ve gone and got yourself a fancy new job, great! Congratulations! Now there’s the tricky task of writing a resignation letter. It can be a tough thing to write, especially if you want to leave the job on good terms with your manager. Here are a few of the best things to do in order to write the perfect resignation notice.
- Write the date – Write the date in the corner of the page. This will be important when working out when your notice period is finished.
- Address the letter to your line manager – Not your supervisor or the person you get on best with (although this would make life a lot easier!)
- Get straight to the point – Don’t write too much faff, get straight to it. Begin with a statement such as ‘It is with regret that I officially give my resignation…’
- State your notice period (as described in your contract), and confirm the date of your last day at the job.
- Mention a reason for your leaving – In an appropriate manner, address your reason for leaving the job, i.e. moving cities, new job.
- Thank your manager and team – Remember to say thank you to the company for the experience they have given you.
- Sign your signature.
