After securing a new role, the time will come to break the news to your current employer.
Read our tops tips to make your resignation process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Whatever your reason for leaving, there’s a standard procedure that you should follow to inform your employer of your intention to leave your job.
When they receive your resignation letter, it’s likely that your employer will invite you to attend an exit interview.
They may want to discuss your reasons for leaving and address any issues you’ve faced. Our advice is to remember that you are moving on - avoid any negative comments and remain calm and professional.
Your employer may use your exit interview as an opportunity to tempt you to stay with the company, so be prepared to face offers of a promotion or maybe a salary increase.
Remember your reasons for submitting your resignation - if you’re unhappy with the company or your role, it’s unlikely that more money or greater responsibility will change that.
Be respectful of your notice period unless your employer agrees to an earlier exit, and remain professional at all times.As tempting as it may be to voice any issues or frustrations, it’s vital to maintain a positive relationship and leave on good terms. You never know what the future may hold and who you may encounter again later in your career.
