    I would keep it simple -

    dear......

    I write this as my formal resignation.

    My last day being .........

    Regards
    ......


    I dont think i would go in to detail of why i was resigning, if they were interested in knowing that they can ask you i think.

    I have had people hand me resignation letters with a blurb on 'thank you for the experience and training I received with your company blablabla'
    Its nice to read - nice to know they arent leaving cos they hate you and all that you are about, but more for personal growth and situation changes.

    Sorry- I am tired.. I think i am just rambling now!

    Maybe something like:

    Please accept this letter as formal notification that I am leaving my position with XYZ company on September 15.

    Thank you for the opportunities you have provided me during my time with the company. If I can be of any assistance during this transition, please let me know.

    Sincerely,

    Your Signature

    Notify them of your intention to resign with however many weeks' notice and that your last day of employment will be <date>.

    It doesn't hurt to put in a little paragraph about how you have valued your time with the company, enjoyed working with your colleagues and wish them and the company all the best for the future.

    Then just sign your name under a "Yours sincerely".

    Dear (manager's name),


    It is with sadness that I write to you to tender my resignation from my role as administration manager of (company).


    I have enjoyed the role and the people very much and will always have fond memories.


    My resignation is effective immediently, as I am on maternity leave.

    hmm now that I think bout it - i dont really like the third line saying that I am on maternity. Is there another way to word it?

    Short and to the point, as Cindy said

    You don't want to give them too much power or information

    Actually, I don't remember my resignation letter - I have only written one... and the manager took the time to read it when I took it in ... but his attitude was not to try to change the resignee's mind . . .
