Formal resignation letter example with two weeks notice
« on: August 16, 2012, 09:30:46 PM »

Formal resignation letter example with two weeks notice. This resignation letter sample is available in doc, pdf, text and image.

Dear (Insert name)

It is with regret that with this letter I tender my resignation from your employment, and are therefore giving up my post of (INSERT JOB TITLE) observing two weeks notice from the date of the letter as per the terms and conditions of my contract of employment. Should you wish to forfeit this period of worked notice I would be willing to exchange the period for paid absence.

I would like to say that it has been a pleasure to work within your company, however now is the time to move on from the company. I will complete my time with you with the same diligence and responsibility as when I started, and would be happy to assist in the training of my replacement.

I hope that you take this resignation with the good will in which it is issued. I hope we may once again work together in the future.

Yours Sincerely,


(Date and Sign)

Nice letter, do many companies still work on the 2 weeks notice period these days?  Is it still down to how long you have worked there as to how long you need to give as notice

I would assume you need to give more notice than two weeks, but I suppose it does depend on the company. A friend of mine used to work at a company where only a very short period of notice was required if leaving the job.

If it's allowed to leave giving only two weeks notice, you don't have to worry too much about giving a reason why you're leaving, although sometimes it is nice to give your boss a reason if you're leaving on good terms (and also give the reason why you're leaving if it's on bad terms!).
