After a work break , due to cancer rather than maternity I started a year long contract, where I love the people .. the work pays well but not so fond of.

I was told a few weeks ago that they wanted to make my job perm but that they would consider me for it, they were concerned I was a bit too assertive. There were a few peopl of high position ata work that I pointed out where wrong and who did not take that so well despite admitting I was right.

Anyhow decided that was not the environment I wanted and before my contract enede nwould look for perm jobs thereafter look for other contract jobs. Because was uncertain of the job market and a bit insecure but have great CV, a few degrees and worked for very well known companies thought the cancer break would suck but would eventually get something .. and when my contracted ended would look fir other Contracts .

In 2 weeks I now have 3 perm job offers and don't know how should I resign. Should I resign on my 1 week or now? Feel bad for l a I g po pl in lurch.. and don't need to burn bridges,,

Your post is quite hard to read, but are you asking how much notice you should give?

What does your contract say?

Go back to your contract and see what notice thst stipulates.

If it's 1 week, give them a full week's notice in writing and in person.

How to resign? By speaking to your manager in person and handing them a letter of confirmation. When? By giving the minimum notice required in your contract, or, if you want to be helpful and are able to give more notice, do that.

Hand your manager the letter, and give them the exact notice they require in your contract. Don't give any reasons in your letter, if you have an exit interview just say that you were looking for new opportunities and found one. Don't slag them off as you never know when you might go back or need them.
