Resignation letter due to personal reasons with notice period (Samples)

In this brief blog post, we will provide examples of a resignation letter due to personal reasons with notice period.

Resignation letter due to personal reasons with notice period

A resignation letter due to personal reasons with notice period can be considered one of the most common resignation letters.

This is a written notice that informs your employer of your departure, and it is usually recommended being submitted at least under a two-weeks notice before leaving, so they have plenty of time to get a suitable replacement for your position.

In some cases, this resignation letter due to personal reasons with notice period can refer to “personal reasons” such as attending a health issue, having to take care of a family member, getting a new job offer (in some cases), relocation of your spouse/family, among other several reasons.

Dear Ms. Cohen

Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from my position as Veterinary Technician with London Veterinary Clinic. I will be leaving my position due to personal reasons and my last day of work will be in two weeks September 29 2014. While I do regret any inconvenience my resignation will cause for you and my co-workers these personal reasons are beyond my control and must be attended to immediately. I will do all I can to ensure that my leaving is as smooth a transition as possible.

Over the next two weeks I will work to ensure that all of my paperwork and duties are made to be current. I’m happy to assist in the training of my replacement if that is possible within this two weeks’ time frame. Please feel free to contact my by phone at (123) 456-7890 or by email at should you have any questions. I will do my best to help you.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at London Veterinary Clinic and I will remember the patients and colleagues fondly. I wish you all well and thank you for your consideration.
