“Dear Mr. Banks,

Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from Banks and Associates. I have been offered an office management position with a firm closer to my home, significantly lessening my commute. My last day of employment here will be April 28, 2015.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working here and have learned so much about efficiency, customer service, and leadership. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to take on such responsibilities. I will truly miss the working atmosphere at Banks and Associates.

I would like you to know that I intend to make the process of my departure as smooth as possible. All of my work and assignments will be completed, and I will make myself available to assist with transitioning someone into my position. Should you have questions or need to reach me, you can always call me at 000-000-0000.

“To: Receiver mail address,

From: Sender mail address,

Subject: Resignation Letter of Manager.

Dear (Sir/name),

First, allow me to express my appreciation to you for permitting me to work on a part-time basis since my accident (***) months ago. (Describe in your words). The arrangement has allowed me to attend my physiotherapies and medical check-ups every week.

However, the doctors have advised me to reconsider working for the time being as more rest is preferred for faster healing to happen. (Describe actual cause and situation). As such, I would not be able to carry on this post of Branch Manager for the time being.

Thus, to be fair to the company, I am tendering my notice of resignation today until I make a complete recovery. I would like my resignation to take effect as soon as possible to accommodate more physiotherapy sessions for my complete recovery. (Describe something about your job experiences). I would appreciate your kind assistance in advising me on the exact date of my release from work as soon as possible. (Express your feelings).

It has been my pleasure to be part of this esteemed organization although it is with regret that I have to resign in such circumstances. (Cordially describe your greetings and expectation).

Thank you for your kind consideration and understanding.

Yours Sincerely,

Sample 3: Management Role Resignation Letter

“Dear Mr. Leo:

I have greatly enjoyed my job managing ABC Pizza Parlor for the last 3 years. Your food products are amazingly delicious. I will miss the cooks, the wait staff, you, and everyone else who works hard to make ABC Pizza the very best in town. This is why it is so difficult for me to submit my resignation; however, I must do so in order to move on to the next phase of my life.

As you know, my Uncle Giovanni is opening a new upscale Italian eatery in the theater district and he has asked me to manage the restaurant for him. I am very excited about this new challenge, and of course, it would be extremely difficult to turn down my uncle’s offer because he is family. I wanted to give you plenty of notice and I wanted to help train a new manager if you would like me to do so. I am able to remain at ABC Pizza through the end of next month or any date prior to that based on your needs.

I want to express my gratitude for the opportunity to work at ABC, for your trust and confidence in me, and for all that you have taught me about the restaurant business. There would be no way I would be able to step up to the task of managing my uncle’s restaurant if I had not first worked at ABC and learned the ropes. Uncle Giovanni has asked me to invite you and your staff to the special VIP soft opening of his restaurant, XYZ Italian, on October 1. Complimentary samples of each menu dish will be served.

I wish you, your family, and all the staff at ABC Pizza Parlor the very best in the years to come. It has been a privilege to know you and serve as your manager, and I hope that we will stay in touch.
