To some extent it could depend on what level you are at in the company, will they need you to train someone else in the position? Although, with you not signing a contract I'm not right sure if that would matter!

I always work on the asumption that if you get paid weekly then one weeks notice should be enough but if you get paid monthly the one month.

Is there anyone at work you could ask without word getting around that you have/are looking for another job? :)
Just remember, nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission. :D x

I'd take a month as a worst case scenario.

If you haven't signed a contract (and you're absolutely positive you haven't), then you're not obliged to give any notice at all.

Having said that, if you're hopeful of a good reference then I would allow a month out of courtesy. They may ask you to leave before then but that's up to them.

If they haven't asked you to sign a contract of employment I doubt they have the world's best grip on their human resources though.
