    That really sucks. What if your great at your job but say your boss doesn't like you? Or might just make it hard for u because they have to then re-train someone else.

    For me if its a promotion I don't need permission, if its at a similar level/pay I do. I think the theory is sometimes areas within a company are in a bad spot and it all turns into a poaching game. Management at the corporate level need some control on which section is robbed to pay the other section.

    It's just about internal politics. A potential new manager won't want to interview a candidate "behind the back" of your current manager. Ya pretty standard and most managers would be ok with it I imagine.

    If they are not and say you can't apply, then obviously that isn't acceptable and at that point you need to speak to HR or someone else.

    At the end of the day it's not really seeking permission. Your manager can't be allowed to stop you progressing your career because it suits them for you to stick around. It's just about letting them know as a courtesy so they don't hear about it on the grapevine.

    I work in Local Government and we need manager approval to apply for internal jobs. I'm not entirely sure why but maybe to give them knowledge that you may not be in your current position much longer. Gives them the opportunity to fill your job if your successful.

    Thanks for your feedback everyone.

    I am currently in the position if writing our HR policy on this.

    Currently, there is no requirement to inform your supervisor but my manager wants me to include it in the revised policy.

    A good manager will help you get the new role, prep you for the interview, etc.

    I don't see any issue in having to discuss the potential move with your existing manager.

    OP if you're writing a HR policy on it is suggest including something in it that any employee currently undergoing formal performance management is not entitled to apply for internal roles -- protects the new managers from poor performers looking for an easy way out of their current job!

    A person performing poorly would be silly to apply internally for another job. They have to get a reference from their previous manager so it wouldn't work in their favour.

    We have to.

    It's for manpower planning purposes here.

    I've never been knocked back though.
