Resignation email UK – HOW TO WRITE a notice email

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

Dear [direct manager’s name],

My apologies for notifying you by email; however, as you know, circumstances are such that on (insert the date when you will cease attending the office) I won’t be coming into the office and I wanted to inform you asap.

Please accept this email as my written end of employment notice from the position of [job title] at [insert company name].
