Dear Mr Smith,
I am writing to inform you Of my decision to leave Smith Industries when my Current contract comes to an end next month.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my three years here. However, I feel that now is the time for me to broaden my horizons and gain experience Of different working environments and practices Within our industry. I
would also like the chance to travel more as part Of my job.
Over the course of my three years at Smith Industries, I have learnt an incredible amount. Not only am I now proficient with the key software programs that are used across the industry, but I have also learnt
valuable interpersonal skills, such as how to organise a team or delegate tasks.
I would be extremely grateful if you could provide me with a letter of reference for future employers.
Thank you for all Of your help and support.
