Sample Job Transfer Request Letter due to Personal Reasons

Concentrating on your job while living away from your family is difficult and sometimes your family needs you while it may be facing problems. This is situation many young professionals find themselves in. Your work takes you places but also keeps you away from family. Often multinational organisations have an internal transfer policy to allow you to move to an office in the city of your choice.

The reason for requesting a transfer can be any of the following.

1.    Your family is facing some problems such as prolonged illness in the family
2.    You are getting married and want to settle in the city of your choice
3.    Your spouse has got a new job in a different city and you wish to shift your location
4.    You are simply not happy with the city you are living in or have become homesick

Its time you wrote your transfer request letter. Before writing the letter make sure you find out about your organisation’s transfer policies and would your transfer entail a change in job profile or change in teams.

Following is a sample template for Location Transfer request letter for personal reasons.

Subject: Request for Location Transfer

Dear Ranjan

Hope you find this letter in good health.

I am writing to you to request a transfer to our Mumbai office after the completion of the ongoing phase of our project by the end of September. As you know I am planning to get married by the end of this year and my spouse and family are well settled in Mumbai. I wish to initiate my personal transfer as per the company policy which allows relocation upon marriage.

Since our team does not work out of the Mumbai office I understand that I will have to join the new project team in Mumbai. Please let me know to whom I should initiate the knowledge transfer sessions to take over my responsibilities.

It was a wonderful experience working with this team and I have cherished memories here. But it’s time to devote quality time to my family.

Kindly accept my transfer request and initiate my transfer formalities.

Thank you and wish you the very best. Please let me know if any official information is required from my end to initiate the transfer.  

Warm Regards!

Vallabh Desai

Sample Job Acceptance Letter Format for Accepting Your New Employment

Congratulations on landing that great new job. Now that your new employer has formally made an offer of employment to you, it’s time you write a Job Acceptance Letter. An Acceptance letter is written to formally communicate your intent of accepting the offer or proposal to work you the new organisation. Usually employers require you to respond within a specified time period and also expect you to accept the terms of employment such as the compensation and job title formally.

While you send your acceptance, it’s also important to let your employer know your tentative date of joining and whether you would require any relocation assistance to help you ease into your new role. And of course don’t forget to thank your hiring managers and the recruitment team for helping you through the process.

Below is a sample job acceptance letter for your reference.
