Companies are often oblivious to the talent staring them right in the face, and go to great lengths to source managers and directors from the wider jobs market. But recruiting internally is a much more cost-effective and less risky option. The company knows the employees; their confidence and attitudes are not in question; and they already know the company’s philosophy, customers and goals. In larger organisations, the selection of in-house candidates is carried out by an internal recruitment manager.
In many ways, the role is similar to a general recruitment manager, but recruiting internally brings with it its own challenges and opportunities. Openings can come about through word of mouth recommendations and the analysis of particularly successful operatives within the company. Talent often stands out, and recognizing that talent makes employees feel more valued and increases loyalty. But also, recruiting internally often means that the successful candidate’s previous position needs to be filled, and where this cannot also be done internally, a more traditional approach to recruitment needs to be initiated.
A background in recruitment will be of benefit to candidates for internal recruitment managers, as many of the demands are the same regardless of where recruits come from. However you need to demonstrate that you can absorb yourself into the culture of a company and have multiple channels of communication open with departmental heads in order to identify the best talent.
Prudence is also required here – not all managers will be enthusiastic about potentially losing their brightest and best to another department, but through reassurance that their replacement will be sought conscientiously and quickly, such concerns can be assuaged if you have the right approach and ability. Your main goal, however, will be to maintain or improve the fortunes of the company, and recognizing and promoting internal talent can go a long way to achieving this.

Newcastle upon Tyne has long been an important location in Britain. During Roman times, a fort called Pons Aelius was erected and served as the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall, while the Duke of Normandy built a castle here in 1080.
In the Middle Ages, Newcastle was a fortress on the northern border during the wars against Scotland. By the 16th century, the area had become known for its coal production. The city enjoyed a monopoly on shipping the fuel and thus created a rivalry with other nearby towns like Tyneside and Sunderland.
Printing, glassworks and shipbuilding were a big part of the city's economy as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Then, 19th century innovations such as safety lamps, improved milling techniques, electricity generation and light bulbs paved the way for the city's prosperity.
Of course, you can't forget one of Newcastle's most beloved products: Newcastle Brown Ale. Also known as Newkie Broon, this drink first went into production in 1928 and has been a favourite beverage ever since. Production, however, has been moved to North Yorkshire.
Today, the Tyneside conurbation is among the 10 most populous in the UK, making it a good choice for those seeking new Internal Recruitment Manager vacancies.
Heavy industry has declined over the last 50 years, to be replaced mainly with retail and the service sector. Just some of the many companies that are headquartered or have regional offices in the city include Greggs the baker, the Go-Ahead Group, Northern Rock, Proctor & Gamble UK and Sage, an enterprise software company.
