i’d say maybe a month to 6 weeks notice? not sure. or maybe it’s better to tell them early and offer to interview/train a replacement if they want?  hopefully someone else can give better advice

In this situation I’d give at least 2 months notice.  That will give you time to be a part of the process of finding and training a replacement.

I agree with the 6-8 weeks timeline.

I also agree with 6-8 weeks! DH works in insurance, and there’s a 6 week minimum turn around time between the posting of a job and when the next employee can fill it!

How hard will it be for them to find and train a replacement?

@emsy3110:  probably not? I mean it gives them that much more time to prepare. Especially if you trust your company to continue employing you through your chosen term date.

Is there anyone internally that would be an obvious choice for your job? If so I think you can get away with giving less notice….

I recently quit and gave a months notice. As I suspected, they gave the job to someone internally who already was familiar with it. I was relieved, because if they had hired someone from the outside it would not have been as smooth and I didn’t want to give more notice and have it drag out.
