Kindly accept this as formal
notice of my resignation from the position of (job title etc), with effect from (normally
date of the letter or receipt of letter of your contract).
I realise that my contract of
employment requires me to work until (date that your employment ceases according to notice
period, calculated from your stated effective date of resignation), however I'd be
grateful to be released earlier on (date that you actually need to leave), and will assume
that this is acceptable unless you inform me to the contrary.
I thank you for your support
during my time with the company, which I have found enjoyable and fulfilling, but I need
to move on due to my own personal reasons.
I shall be obliged if you let me
know the arrangements for handing back equipment, company car, etc, and handing over
outstanding work and responsibilities.
