Google introduces new job search feature for United Kingdom workers

Share

Starting today, searches for key phrases like "jobs near me" or "banking jobs" on Google will return results inside a new feature that shows jobs across the United Kingdom from popular sites.

Job hunters will be able to save jobs, and even set themselves up with email notifications to that they never miss an opportunity. Of course, it remains to be seen as to how successful Google's play in the job market space pans out, particularly given that its original aim for the USA rollout was to help "the players in the ecosystem to be more successful".

The Google For Jobs service already exists in the US, Spain and parts of Africa, where the firm claims to have already connected millions of people to new job opportunities.

Following the announcement, Joy Xi, product manager at Google Search, told the London Evening Standard: "Job hunting can be challenging - jobs are listed on different sites across the web and it's not always easy to identify which jobs are suited to your needs or where to find them. Employers may be feeling the impact of this too: three quarters of United Kingdom employers face talent shortages and have issues filling open positions with the right candidate".

Manny Pacquiao calls out Floyd Mayweather for rematch
The obvious fight is a rematch with Mayweather, whom he lost to due to a unanimous decision three years in Las Vegas. Matthysse went down in the third, fifth and seventh - and the contest was then soon waved off.

Positions will be ranked on relevance and quality, using spam detection software to filter out any fraudulent job postings.

Some of the sites providing listings to the service include Guardian Jobs, Haymarket, Totaljobs.com, LinkedIn, Glassdoor and CV-Library.

Indeed's United Kingdom managing director Bill Richards said: 'Indeed's sole mission is to help people get jobs.

"To that end, we're focused on bringing the best opportunities to jobseekers and the very best candidates to United Kingdom companies".

'Indeed is confident that it will continue to be successful no matter who enters this space'.

Google's job search feature collects and organises job listings within its search engine.
