My version

Should any vacancies become available, the company will give first choices to its in-house staff.

I used plurals for vacancy and choice because I believe you're working on the company,s hiring  policies. There are always going to be vacancies in different departments.

mytiamo,

your subordiate clause requires a verb, and your main clause needs an  " Is" as " is preferred".

Try this one:

The company will give first consideration to internal staff when filling vacant positions.

mytiamo

disagree with tamiew
i have read some want ads before, none of them uses a word such as an"is" or a "are" before the word of preferred.

Language used in Wanted ad or Classified ad is often abbreviated to save space and money  as advertising can be costly.  If you leave out a verb in your first clause, there is no verb there. Let me illustrate  this in your sentence:

(Should any vacancy available in the company), . Doesn't that sound funny withoit a verb such as be or become?
(Internal staff preferred.) Preferred is used as adjective. I think you need to use a verb to be here.
