Firstly may I apologise for the texting you of my plan to resign, my reason for this was to give you the heads up of my plan 1st as you requested. I was not sure if you were out today and might not see your e-mails.
Following the loss of the JL Contract and our discussion in your car I have made my decision to move on, as you know I am a fire engineer and really cannot see me fitting in with a merged discipline company – that said I wish you all the success.
The recent years have been challenging, the job has became more intense to a point where I am being treated by my doctor with Anti Depressants, Beta blockers and regular blood pressure checks. Various situations have added to the stress to include the following:
v Details over holiday being discussed and agreed, then goal posts being moved. Whilst I appreciate I was advised to take more time off, as it suited the business during busy periods this was not always possible. The J L Tender process at the start of the year is an example where you agreed I should be around.
v Feeling pressured regarding sharing information between you and group MD & Chairman during the intense time of the JL Tender outcome, this was shared with personnel but conveniently brushed under the carpet.
v Pressure over nights out entertaining, despite several attempts to advise you I have a young family, no baby sitters and a working wife the pressure went on.
v Pressure over figures with sarcastic e mails, I would like to point out I was an account manager, I am an engineer, I support engineers technically, write software, I’m permanently on secondary escalation – I therefore feel a sales man is somewhat pushing it.
v Although I have verbally requested stress risk assessments, to date one has not been carried out.
Hopefully I can move on, have less sleepless nights and reduce my stress levels.
You requested the return of the computer and mobile telephone; I run my own MAC at home and supplied my own mobile telephone.
All orders I have received to date have been sent to Corinna in the office.
At our meeting on the 29th May 2013 at Cobham Services M25 I will give you the drawings I have.
I will call RR when the dust has settles, in the interim give him my regards.
Finally, I plan to start my notice period as of today and will be available as required for the 4 weeks notice period. My car is arranged for inspection and collection from home where it was delivered in early – mid June.
