How to write a resignation email uk
It’s almost always better to hand your notice in in person, and then follow up with a formal written communication for your employment file.
However, society has moved on to a quicker pace and also circumstances can be such that you need to send immediately or possibly your company policy requires immediate confirmation so we’ve included below a nice sample example for you to take and adapt
