Dear Ms Kodak,
I am writing this letter with regret, in regard to my need to terminate my contract with your organisation as a Service Agent. The employment contract provides for a requirement of two weeks’ notice and I therefore wish my last day of employment to be on 25th of May 2015.
I would very much like to explain my reason for leaving, as I have been very happy here. The decision was made for personal reasons, with my family and I moving to Singapore. My husband has recently been offered a managerial position there and this is a major step for his career. Leaving this really happy organisation is a great loss for me as I have learnt a great deal, was made to feel part of the company’s future, and was given opportunities to grow.
Given my hope was to take more responsibility here, and given you have a branch office in Singapore, perhaps you could help me approach our office there. I would certainly appreciate your guidance.
Finally, I would like to thank you for the help provided during the period of my employment.
