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.

Known for its towering cathedral and tiny medieval streets that weave through the centre, York may seem old-fashioned in some places, but it offers a wealth of modern-day opportunities for those seeking Internal Recruitment Manager vacancies.
Of course, behind York's modern charm lies a city with a long history dating back thousands of years. Archaeological evidence has been found of a Mesolithic settlement from around 8000 BC, while there are also ruins of Roman and Anglo buildings.
Until the Industrial Revolution, York was a prominent trading town, although this dwindled in the 17th century as the city's main competitors, Leeds and Hull, began to take over.
However, the railway made it to York in 1839 and the city once again became a prominent location for the British economy. Indeed, companies like the North Eastern Railway, Rowntrees and Terry's were all based in the region during this time - and continued to be throughout the 20th century.
These days, much of York's business is in the service industry, including finance, IT and tourism. Some of the top employers in the region include Aviva, Shepherd Building Group and British Telecom.
Much of the confectionary industry has disappeared from York in the recent past, with a significant portion of production being moved abroad. However, Nestle still has headquarters and a large manufacturing and distribution facility in the city, making tasty treats like KitKats and Yorkie bars.
