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.
