Your Direct Report’s Name
Dear Direct Report Name:
Please accept this letter as my two-week notice from the TITLE position for COMPANY NAME, effective two weeks from CURRENT DATE.
COMPANY NAME has proven to be a fantastic employer in terms of X, Y, and Z (qualities you liked in the job).
I especially wanted to thank you for the opportunity to grow my skills (what did this manager do for you that you appreciated?)
While my last day is scheduled to be DATE, I hope I can be of assistance in preparing materials for my replacement or tying up any loose ends related to my position being temporarily vacant before then.
