Google's mega-helpful job search tool finally arrives in the U.K.
- Google’s job search aggregation tool is now live for users in the U.K.
- Popular U.K. job listing sites such as CV-Library, Guardian Jobs, Haymarket, Reed, and Totaljobs are among the first to join the service in the region.
- The feature, which has been available in the U.S. for just over a year, can be found on desktop, mobile browsers, or the Google Search app as of today.
Google’s job search feature is now live for job-hungry Google searchers in the U.K. The powerful job search tool has been helping connect jobseekers with employers in the U.S. for a little over a year, and now netizens in the U.K. can search for new vocational opportunities straight from the Google Search homepage.
Popular U.K. job listing sites such as CV-Library, Guardian Jobs, Haymarket, Reed, and Totaljobs are among the first to join the service, as well as other global job search sites like Monster, Microsoft’s professional social platform LinkedIn, and company review site Glassdoor (via the BBC).
If you’re in the U.K., you can test the feature out for yourself on desktop, mobile browsers, or the Google Search app by simply typing in “jobs near me” or by searching for a more specific field, such as “healthcare jobs.” The results should then show relevant listings within the search page pulled from all partnered sites.
As well as aggregating job listings into one handy table, Google’s job search tool also provides a number of useful filters to narrow down your search by category, date, location, employer, and more. The listings will also show, where available, previous employee reviews and a salary comparison via Glassdoor, and estimate the commute time to your potential new workplace through Google Maps.
The search giant has been steadily improving its job search service since its debut back in June 2017. It has also been made available in India and Canada in recent months. Google claims the feature has led to “130 percent more companies showing jobs in Search and connected tens of millions of people around the world to new job opportunities.”
