Dear Mr, Dunkin

RE: resignation on February 12, 20xx

Dear Mr. Dunkin:

It is with great regret that I must inform you that in two weeks’ time I am resigning from the position of assistant manager. I understand that my departure will cause a disruption, and I will do everything in my power to facilitate the smooth transition of duties to my replacement.

My decision to resign is not due to any shortcomings from this company, but to a recent diagnosis of a severe health problem. I was advised by my physician to cease working as soon as possible. With much consideration, I must agree with my doctor’s recommendation, because I cannot function at the typical level that I have no doubt you have come to expect, and focus on my health at the same time. 

While working here, the support and encouragement I have received and the connections I have made, both professional and personal, have been invaluable. I will miss the challenging nature of my work and the enjoyable atmosphere and coworkers. I will always be grateful.

Dear Mr. Comer,

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time of employment at Internal Structures, Inc as a professional security officer, but must provide notice of my resignation to be effective on January 20. I am leaving to make a career change and to pursue dreams I had shelved out of fear of the unknown. Through consistent and reliable employment, Internal Structures has afforded me the chance to take that step.

As my supervisor, I thank you for all you did for me within this company and as part of my employment. Please ensure my coworkers are aware that I valued the teamwork, professionalism, and kindness of the entire department. I will miss each of you as I move on.

I know the department is well cross-trained regarding each role and job duties. But, I want to make myself fully available in case of any questions or problems. You can reach me at or 555-225-6543. I welcome hearing from you anytime!

Mr. Julian Treble

Human Resource Manager

Curtain Fall Security Services

2938 Orange Ave

Nantucket, MA 02582

Dear Mr. Treble:

I am writing this letter to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as a security guard for Curtain Fall Security Services. In keeping with the terms of my contract, please consider this as a two weeks’ notice of my intention to leave. June 3, 2015, will be my last working day.

I cannot write the words that will explain how grateful I am for the experience that you have provided to me over the 15 years. However, due to my dwindling health and advanced years, I can no longer meet the demands of this very excruciating job. A security guard has to be alert and on his feet at all times, both of which I am finding quite difficult to do.

I find myself hoping that I have returned the favor somewhat. I will be in touch with you regarding my resignation documents and financial settlements soon and to discuss if there is anything that you would like me to do in order to help you train my replacement.
