My name is Peter Mandelson and I have been a loyal employee of HMG Inc. for over twelve years. Currently, I am a floor manager working in the Urmston branch.
It has recently come to my attention that my wife’s father now requires full time care, and I would like to request that I be transferred to a different office so that we may be more involved.
I am aware that the company operates an office and factory in Devon, and working here would mean being close enough to my father-in-law. If my exact role is not available at the Devon site, I am willing to interview for other relevant jobs and consider them on a case-by-case basis.
Unfortunately, this is a time sensitive issue, and so I would like to further request that I receive confirmation of the transfer within the next 30 days, or I may have to consider leaving the company entirely.
