Put your resignation in writing
- Clearly state what date you will be leaving.

- Offer to train your replacement or leave a handover.

At what point do you hand in your notice?
The best time to hand in your notice is when you have a formal offer in writing and when you know your manager will be available to talk. It is best to hand your notice to your manager in person if this is possible. They will appreciate it much more than an email or a letter left on their desk.
Can I sign a new employment contract before resigning?
Sign before you resign One thing you should never do is resign from your current job before you have the written job offer and have signed the contract for your new one. It only takes one thing for a contract to fall over.
