When writing a resignation letter in Singapore, these are some of the things that you need to keep in mind.

  • If you are employed for one year or less, you must give a one-month notice period. If you are employed for more than one year, you must give two months’ notice.
  • If you give the required notice period, you are not obligated to give any reasons for quitting;  however, it would be best to tell your employer why you are leaving your job.
  • The first step is to tell your employer about leaving the job and the final work date. Keep it short, as the essential part of the letter is the last date of your work.
  • Thank your employer for the position and the opportunities you have enjoyed during your work period.
  • Ensure you proofread your letter before sending it to your employer. You can send the letter to your family and friend to check for grammatical errors.

“Dear Mr Kaveni,

It is with remorse that I write to you today with my formal resignation. My last day of work will be January 8th, 2017.

The short notice is somewhat personal; all I can say is that I am no longer in need of employment. I want you to know it has nothing to do with you or the company. I have enjoyed my four years at ABC and have nothing but good things to say about management and my co-workers.

I hope you’ll accept this short notice of resignation, and please let me know if I can help find or train a replacement.

Best wishes,

[Signature]
