Free Two Weeks’ Notice Letter Template

Have you found a new job and you need to hand in your two weeks’ notice letter to your current employer? If so, congratulations! Starting a new job is always a big step, and we hope that you’re happy and that you prosper in your new role.

Of course, before you can leave your current position behind and start afresh in your new job, there’s first the matter of handing in your two weeks’ notice letter. This is to advise your manager or company owner that you’ll be heading to pastures new.

If you’re wondering how to word your two weeks’ notice letter and what information to put in it, no sweat! Below you’ll find a template to download, fill in with your details, edit as you need, and then send to your current boss and perhaps the human resources department. In our template, we’ve done the hard work of thinking about how you’ll phrase your big goodbye to your current company, so you don’t have to.


How To Edit The Notice Letter Template With Our Edit PDF Tool

When you download the template, you’ll notice that by default it’s in PDF format. Open the file, and you’ll see that there are the following fields for you to fill in:

  • The date
  • The company’s name and address
  • Your name and position
  • Your manager’s name
  • The date you’ll be leaving the role
  • Your signature

To fill in the fields:

  1. Go to our edit PDF page, upload the document and enter your information there.
  2. With our edit PDF tool, you can carry out all the tasks you need to complete the two weeks’ notice letter, namely both filling in the fields and writing your signature at the bottom.
  3. Then, when you’re ready, simply click the “Download” button to receive the modified file on your device, ready to send.

What’s more, you can do more than just fill in the template’s form fields and add your signature with our edit PDF tool. If you wish, you can change the contents of the letter itself, add text, remove text, alter the tone, or make any amendments that you think are appropriate.

To edit the template’s existing text with our tool:

  1. Drag the cursor over the text you want to edit, so that it’s highlighted.
  2. You’ll see that the option to edit or delete this text appears. Change it as you wish.
  3. When you’ve made the edits you want to, click “Download” to receive the altered file.

Furthermore, as we say, you can make a variety of other edits with our tool, such as adding new text, images, shapes and stickers. When you’re in the tool, you’ll see the available options in the main menu.

However, notably, if you choose to edit the template, you may find it useful to keep the following guidelines in mind to ensure that your notice is well received:

  • Check the revised document to make sure that you’ve used the same formatting throughout, such as the font, size and colors. This way, your notice will look professional. Be cautious of adding anything too frivolous or not serious.
  • Ensure that the tone of your notice remains respectful. You may be leaving the company, but it’s still a good idea to remain on good terms with your soon-to-be ex-colleagues, in case you want to ask them for references, and not to burn your bridges.
  • Make sure that the two weeks’ notice letter remains brief and to the point. It’s best to communicate the bare facts about your decision to leave, without going into detail about why. Thank your employer for the opportunity to work with them.
  • When you email the notice, consider whether you should email your human resources department, as well as any other colleagues, to keep them informed.
  • Make the email’s subject line short and focused. You probably already know that time is money where work is concerned, so the more concise you are, the better.
