What should you include in your resignation letter?

Your resignation letter should include a clear statement of resignation that details your current position, the company you work for and the date of your final day of employment. Showing gratitude can help you leave on a positive note. You might like to acknowledge positive experiences and opportunities provided.
You can mention your reason for leaving, but try to keep it positive and avoid criticising the company or your role. It’s also a good idea to offer assistance during the transition. This might include handing over responsibilities or training colleagues.
