Want to use this letter?
When leaving a position, it’s important to do so as professionally and gracefully as possible, even if you are transferring into another department or promoting within the organization. A formal letter of resignation can aid that transition. The letter should include the details of your transfer such as the date of departure, what pending projects will need to be handed over to another staff member and a contact number at your new position. It’s also a good idea to state some form of appreciation for your current manager, whether it’s for the opportunity to serve or for the manager’s mentorship.

Dear Mr. Simmons,
I am writing to officially resign my position as public affairs director at Company Name as of October 9, 2014. As you know, I have accepted a position as the assistant director of public affairs at Martin Health, CMF’s parent corporation.
Your guidance, knowledge and professionalism has been greatly appreciated these past four years. I am grateful for your generosity and support, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with you in another capacity. Your team here is top-notch, and I know you all will achieve great things in the coming years.
I will schedule a meeting with you this week to discuss pending projects, although I anticipate completing most projects before my departure. Please feel free to contact me at any time if any questions arise after my transfer. My new office phone number will be 000-000-0000.
