Basic Resignation Letter

If you want to resign from the role you currently have because you have found a new job or looking to do something else then you always need to ensure that even if you hand your notice into your Manager verbally you should always confirm this in writing even if it is in a basic format.

It is not essential to explain why you are resigning from your role, you can keep it to the basic facts of when you are leaving from what role but it is always nice to keep things friendly and end on a good note. Worth remembering especially if you may have to ask for a reference in the future.

Please see below for a basic format of a resignation letter:
