If you are soon to be handing your notice in or thinking about it and want an idea of what you should include in your resignation letter then keep reading for an example letter template you can use and act as a guide.
When writing a resignation letter you need to include certain criteria including the date you are resigning, when is your last day and depending on the circumstances maybe allow the courtesy of explaining why you are resigning. You also need clarification that your final monies and P45 will be forwarded to you in due course.
