Can an employer do this?

Does anyone know if an employer is allowed to fill a position without advertising it first?

Thanks

    Think it depends on company policy.

    From my understanding, they must advertise the vacany internally FIRST before they advertise the vacany externally.
    There are exceptions such as promotions/retirment etc.

    However, the company I work for is German and one of the biggest on the planet so the rules may be somewhat different from what you would normally find in the UK.

    From your mates point of view it doesn't make any difference anyway.

    If they want to employ someone from outside the company they will do. Even if they have to advertise internally and interview every current employee, they can then still employ an outsider.

    I think government run organisations may opperate the 'advertise internally' policy but it's not a legality and doesn't make much difference anyway.

    Yes. Otherwise many a small company would never employ people due to the cost of recruitment.

    Don't think so

    A company that I knew wanted to offer a osition to someone, but first of all put a notice up (albeit only for a day) on the Intranet so they didn't get into trouble. Could be policy though.

    As it happenned someone else saw it and applied - ha ha

    I think a lot of large companies have internal governance policies that deem that all positions must be advertised internally.

    But legally, i think u can just hire however you wish.

    if its his company then he did what most others would

    at the end of the day its who you know and not what you know

    also legally you dont have to advertise but many do to stick with union agreements and other policies they have set themselves, seen in larger organisations rather than small to medium size businesses
