Name of Supervisor
City, State, Zip Code
Dear Name of Immediate Supervisor:
I am resigning from my position as a production supervisor on April 12. This resignation letter provides you with two weeks' notice to plan for job coverage or my replacement.
Working at (company name) for the past twelve years was an opportunity that I appreciate. Starting as a production worker, I progressed through the ranks to my current supervisory role and I appreciate the help and support that I had from you along the way. I've enjoyed my coworkers and the company provides an excellent work environment for employees.
I have been offered the position of plant manager. This is a new job opportunity for me, a job opportunity that will not be available here for quite some time. So, I will pursue this new job opportunity even though I hate to leave (company name).
I start my new job on June 1 and had hoped to take several days of vacation in between positions as I have not used any vacation time this year. Between now and then, I'd like to help with the transition of my job and responsibilities to another employee. It is my sincere wish that my leaving does not cause you undue hardship.
You've been a good boss and a good employer. I'll help all that I can until I start my new job. Just let me know what you need me to do.
I wish you nothing but the best. I have been thankful for and happy in my job with (company name). My memories of (company name) and my coworkers will be positive.
