Hayley Fletcher, accountancy and finance recruitment specialist from Thorpe Molloy Recruitment Ltd gives her top tips to handing in your resignation
Sweaty palms? Nervous butterflies in your stomach? Not quite sure how to start the conversation? Thinking of starting with, “it’s not you, it’s me, I just need a change?” Nope, we’re not talking about that type of break-up, but the break-up between you and your employer.
It’s never easy telling an employer that you are leaving but if you exit as a professional it will be a smoother transition. It’s polite to speak to your boss first, before you hand in a resignation letter. If it’s not possible to meet your manager in person then telephone or Skype are good alternatives. Remember to remain professional and respectful because how you conduct yourself affects your reputation.
