I hereby tender my resignation from my post of Assistant Accountant at Brooks Accounting Firm with effect from 13th September 2010.
I have accepted another position elsewhere which offers a higher compensation and opportunities for further development, which I feel will expand my potential. I have learnt a lot from you and my honorable colleagues at Brooks Accounting during my tenure here, and I would like to say thank you for your kind support and guidance in the past.
I will be able to complete all the current tasks on hand and I am prepared to pass over or train my replacement before my last work day. Please do not hesitate to call me should you require my assistance on any project.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
