Hi there, I posted a little while ago about wanting to leave my nanny job as a lot has been going on the last few months which the family are aware of and it's affecting my realitionship with partner and my mental health, I usually work two days a week and not working this week as the girl I look after isn't well, I was going to hand my resignation in this week so that I could do it properly but instead I won't see them to do so. I don't have a contract and I'm unsure how much notice and how to do the resignation? should I do it by e-mail/letter? The summer holidays start after next week and they're off the first 2 weeks but...I'd prefer to give them notice!

always in writing either letter or email. what does your contract say about notice?

Haven't got a contact. Been working since April and they had mentioned about getting one but never happened.

Google: statutory notice
From memory I think it is a week.

I would give four weeks notice now by email. You are not working this week anyway. You would be working next week, then they are off (which I assume means you are not needed) for a fortnight. I don't think anyone can complain about getting 4 weeks notice - it's not your fault you would only be working one of them.

I've only resigned once and that was in person, but, I handed them the letter of resignation at the same time. Easier sometimes face to face, but, do it in writing as well. Makes it official. Good luck.
