The one can say that " If by any chance It wasn't possible for you to call me just text me"
By the same token, can one say the following:
"If by any chance it was possible to find or to hear about any vacant in your department then please let me know"
Or
"
If by any chance you find or you hear about any vacant in your department then please let me know"

The Clarification:
I wanted to say that if you there is any chance that let you hear or know that there's any vacant in your department then please let me know

    Your examples are a bit wordy, but OK. I would prefer the second one.

    But you want "vacancy," not "vacant." Vacancy is a noun (which you want here), "vacant" is an adjective.

    Yes, a bit wordy! :)

    Perhaps it can be shortened to: "If you hear / learn of any vacancy in your department, please let me know".
