Hi Everyone,Sorry if this is in the wrong spot, but just want some general feedback on the topic.At your work (or previous work), did you have to advise your supervisor / get their endorsement for you to apply for another job within the company??Do you agree or disagree with this practice??What were the reasons given for this being the process?? (i.e. - you'd never be expected to tell your supervisor you were looking for a job outside of the company, so why have to tell them when applying within the company??Thanks for your help!!!AC

Manager "approval" to apply for an internal job at work??

No, definitely have net needed approval. Of course they find out fairly quickly, but most places I have worked encourage you to apply for internal positions. They certainly can't stop you!

Ummm, is that actually in your policies and procedures or something made up by the supervisor? What a load of cr^p.

It's like that at my work too (unless we work at the same place 😯).

It's the same at my work too. We need formal approval before applying for anything. Normally, the "new" supervisor won't consider someone who hasn't spoken to their current one.

I don't work ATM, but at two places I've worked before, you definitely had to get approval. Your current line manager had to fill in a section on your application.

We are advised to discuss it with our manager if applying for internal roles, but it isn't mandatory. They like to focus on development & if you have an interest in another area then can maybe help getting you there.

How weird! Why would you need their approval? What's it got to do with them? Isn't it a breech of privacy? I'd check your hr policies and if it stipulates that then u have to. But still how weird.

It was a part of the application for an internal position at every company I've worked for. I believe the reason is to provide you with feedback (do they think the role is suitable, how can they help develop your skills etc), not to hold you back. Usually they can't actually stop you from applying, but may not endorse your application if you aren't meeting KPI's.

I know in companies like coles and woolies you need your manager to sign off.
