    Changing your position to a lower one

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know how to say the fact of changing your position to a lower one when you are for example a manager.

    Here there is a brief example : Currently I am a manager but since I work a lot , I want to be staff again . could you say I want to downgrade myself as regular staff to work less hours?


    Many thanks,

    Irland5

    Unless you're posting in the "Other Languages" section, please don't use foreign words in your title/post. It's of no use to anyone here who doesn't speak Spanish to know what the Spanish term you're looking to translate is. I have changed your thread title.
    You could call it "voluntary demotion".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You could also speak of 'resigning as manager', or 'resigning your manager's position'.

    More informally you could 'give up' said position.

    It would be helpful to know what the deleted foreign words were.

    Re: Changing your position to a lower one

    Irland5, you can put the Spanish phrase/sentence in the body of your post — just not in the title.

    However, you seem to have lost interest, having made no response to any replies so far.
