Shammi, the LL holds a domain on this and it is the LL accountability to find the best fit for the open roles. Off course if you want to pitch yourself for a role you are free to do this but it is still up to LL do decide if you are the best fit.

To dispose this Domain and Accountability from the LL means that there need either to be a solid process that ensure best fit for Roles or an person assigned to a Role that is qualified to make good judgement of the available people for the open roles. Can imagine in a highly specialized work field that the LL is not always the best person to judge the fit. 

Waiting for someone to come up is, in my opinion, a bad solution. You want open roles to be filled asap as other Roles may rely on the Accountabilities of these roles.

Hope this helps
