After discussing my plight (boredom, working beneath my level) with my practice lead, he worked with me and the project partner to get me rolled off. It helped that there was an open need for someone with my skillset, along with veiled threats of me leaving the company.

I had success a few years ago just being very honest and (somewhat genuinely...) offering to stay as long as needed. I essentially said that I didn't feel the role was a good fit for my career aspirations or interests, that I wanted them to be aware of what I was feeling so they could take it into consideration for resource planning, and that I wouldn't do anything to risk the success of the project by leaving early or forcing a role off until they were prepared to backfill.

It got a little awkward, but I had a good relationship with the leadership and it ultimately worked out for both of us.

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
