Welcome to Compass Recruitment

Often the excitement of securing a new role is accompanied by feelings of trepidation when it actually comes to resign. The best approach is to keep it short, simple and diplomatic. Type up a resignation letter and arrange to have a face-to-face meeting with your boss. Do not gossip to your work colleagues first, treat your offer in confidence and act professionally.

Be prepared:

  • Articulate that your intention is to resign.
  • Try not to dwell on negatives perhaps focus on why you have decided to accept a new position and how you feel it will advance your career.
  • Emphasise that your decision is final and you are committed to your new employer.
  • Agree on a final work date and discuss what areas of work you need to complete or handover.
  • Be prepared for your Manager to perhaps be quite emotional, they could be genuinely upset, or look to make you feel guilty that you are letting the side down.
  • Have your resignation letter to hand and present it in the meeting.
