  • Statement of resignation with an effective date

Sample Resignation Letter of Security Guard 2

This next sample resignation letter of security guard combines two problems as their reason for wanting to leave, the first is the fact that they have some personal reasons for leaving, and they don’t describe them further, and the second reason they give is not being promoted despite their experience and expertise.

In such circumstances, one may also decide to leave with immediate effect, that is, foregoing the notice period entirely, but that may not be something many people do, though it is not forbidden by law and most employers understand if the reason for it is valid and justifiable.

“Dear Management Team;

I am writing to let you know that I am resigning from my position as Security Officer and wish to commence my notice period with my last date of employment being [date]. However, I have already booked a holiday for the weekends of [date] and [date] so I calculate my last working day will be Sunday [insert date].

The reason I have decided to leave is due to a change in personal circumstances coupled with my feelings of frustration that despite my significant experience in the role I am not considered for more responsibility such as Mentor or Team Leader and I don’t see my career progressing within MAG.

Please contact me if you have any other questions.

Yours sincerely,

[Name Surname]”

Sample Resignation Letter of Security Guard 3

The sample resignation letter for a security guard that is given below cites the reason as being the fact that they have taken another job, and they will be leaving after such and such date.

Most experts agree that if you have taken a job with another company you should tell the employer in your resignation letter or even in person when you tell them that you will be leaving, as it is not nice to keep things secretive in a community where there will be some communication anyway, and in that case, you may not come off looking so good.

If you have taken another job somewhere, you may briefly include it in your resignation letter but you do not need to go into any details about it.

Sample Resignation Letter of Security Guard 6

The last sample resignation letter of a security guard that we will look at talks about their poor health that is reducing their productivity, especially in terms of a job that is concerned with security.

Unfortunately, this may be a common reason for security guards to resign for as their jobs are physically challenging and with the natural process of aging sometimes they may find it hard to keep going with the strenuous challenges that this job poses.

Mr. Julian Treble

Human Resource Manager

Curtain Fall Security Services

2938 Orange Ave

Nantucket, MA 02582

Dear Mr. Treble:

I am writing this letter to inform you of my decision to resign from my position as a security guard for Curtain Fall Security Services. In keeping with the terms of my contract, please consider this as a two weeks’ notice of my intention to leave. November 16 will be my last working day.

I cannot write the words that will explain how grateful I am for the experience that you have provided to me over the 15 years. However, due to my dwindling health, I can no longer meet the demands of this very challenging job. A security guard has to be alert and on his feet at all times, both of which I am finding quite difficult to do.

I find myself hoping that I have returned the favor somewhat. I will be in touch with you regarding my resignation documents and financial settlements soon and to discuss if there is anything that you would like me to do in order to help you train my replacement.
