I start the new job in Jan 9. I need to provide 1 weeks notice to my employer. My work at my current employment is mediocre and I think it would be best for both myself and the company to forego the formality of the 1 week and cancel my employment. Furthermore, my superior is overseas, although he is checking his email.
I was thinking about submitting the resignation as follows:
Sending an email to my superior (the CTO) and possibly the HR explaining that despite having a good start with the company, I don't see myself there long-term, and have decided to accept an opportunity elsewhere which is very much in line with my interests.
Suggesting that we forego the formality of 1 week notice as my work isn't crucial for business continuity.
Instructions in where I deposited the work that I have completed.
That I will be deleting all company intellectual property from my laptop and will not use any further resources unless explicitly contacted and requested to work the final week.
My contact number and email address in-case they need to contact me.
I've decided that I do not need to notify the recruiting company, but I am sure they will contact me and ask why I decided to leave.
My biggest concern is that I will be sending the resignation letter over email, and because I don't have any physical company property, I won't be going in to the office.
Is there anything else I should do, or is this sufficient? The company has my bank account details for depositing my first and final cheque and superannuation (as required by Australia).
