How strict are UK firms with the “3 months notice” for resignations? I’m not looking to leave, but if I did it would be to go back home to the US, where it would be difficult to get an employer to wait 3+ months from an offer to start date. Can your employer do anything/would be be very unprofessional to resign with only a month or so of notice in the UK?

Its negotiable and with your line manager in most cases. In mine, they wanted to do all 3 but in adjacent teams they let people go in 1 or 2.

My experience has been that it's pretty flexible. Just have an open and honest conversation.

Depends on circumstance. Hard to bail out on a big project just before go live, easy if you’re on the bench.

One firm made me work every day of it (when in Industry), EY put me on gardening leave as a SC as I was coming to Deloitte. And then when I did a stint back in Industry D let me shave it down to 5 weeks.

I’ve left two big4 firms and did no more than a couple of weeks both times. Try to time your job search with your project if you can, it makes it a lot easier to agree your last day
