We have an early retirement scheme starting at 56 and others have 'claimed' it earlier although none I think as early as 52. I will argue that in four years they would pay it to me anyway so do they really want me hanging around for four years? They know I am not happy but I have been deferring asking to leave as I am hanging on for last years bonuses to be confirmed (October). I will not hand in my notice but rather tell them that "my preference is to negotiate an exit".....after all, they can only say no.

I am keen to leave on good terms as I would like to have some 'light' consulting post ER and they may be concerned that if I leave under a cloud that I could go to the competition (I wouldn't).

So I think there are reasonable chances I can leave with something.
