Andy Burnham is leaving the shadow cabinet to focus on his campaign to become the next mayor of Greater Manchester.
The shadow home secretary and former leadership contender told the Labour Party conference: "It is time for me to turn my full focus to Greater Manchester.
"That's why I can tell you all first today that I have asked Jeremy to plan a new shadow cabinet without me, although I will of course stay until it is in place.
"I have given my all to this Party and always put its interests above those of factions and personalities. And I have given exactly the same loyalty to all four of the Labour leaders I have served."
The mayoral election will take place in 2017 at the same time as scheduled local elections in May.

A man arrested after an Imam was brutally attacked while walking home from a mosque, has been released by murder squad detectives.
Jalal Uddin died in hospital from serious head injuries after being assaulted in a children's playground in Rochdale on Thursday night.
A 31-year-old man arrested on Friday on suspicion of murder has now been released without charge and eliminated from police inquiries.
Detectives say a racist motive for the murder has not been ruled out but they are keeping an "open mind".
Following extensive analysis of CCTV in the area, we now know that Jalal walked into the park from the South Street entrance at 8.41pm. He was then found injured seven minutes later by a passing member of the public.
Local religious leaders have called for calm, asked police be allowed to do their work and for locals not to speculate what prompted the attack.
