Ielts GT Writing Task 13

You work for a company and have recently decided to leave your current employment.

Write a letter to your employer. In your letter:

  • Explain why you are writing
  • Explain why you have decided to leave the company
  • Tell your employer what you plan to do after leaving your present employment

Dear Mr. Norton,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to formally inform you of my decision to resign from my current position at Alpha Inc. I have carefully considered this matter and believe that it is the right time for me to pursue new opportunities and challenges in my professional career.

I have decided to leave the company primarily due to my desire for personal growth and career advancement. While I have valued my time here and appreciate the opportunities and experiences I have gained, I believe that exploring new avenues will allow me to broaden my skill set and contribute to different organizational contexts.

After leaving my present employment, I plan to take some time to reassess my career goals and objectives. I intend to engage in further professional development activities, such as attending specialized training programs and workshops, to enhance my skills and knowledge. This will better equip me to take on new responsibilities and challenges in my future endeavors.

I am committed to ensuring a smooth transition during this period of change. I am more than willing to collaborate with you and my team to transfer knowledge, complete any pending projects, and assist in finding a suitable replacement to fill my role.

I will always look back on my time here with fondness and gratitude.

Yours sincerely,

Tracy Jones
