I'm not in the civil service at the moment but from what I've seen there are no unwritten rules if you're looking for promotion especially if you've passed your probation. I would advise speaking to your manager if the job is the same grade as you are now. This is because I get the impression from my offer letter that level transfers (say EO to EO for example) require manager approval and that they aren't a fan of approving level transfers less than 2 years after a person starts. If the job is in another department then your status for application would be OGD rather than external or internal.

Your current government department cannot prevent you from permanently moving to another government department, whether promotion, level transfer, or even go down in grades.

They don't have to to agree to any secondment, not sure but probably the same for loans.

They shouldn't/couldn't prevent you from internal (same government department) promotion. They probably can prevent you from level transfer within the same government department if you haven't been in post the minimum time as specified when you were recruited.
