Google's Launched its Job Hunting Aggregation Tool in the UK

By Tom Pritchard on at

If you're in the market for a new job, or just a change of pace, there are plenty of job sites out there for you to check out. There are even plenty of aggregation sites that pull in vacancies from multiple sources and make the hunting process that bit easier. Now Google has announced its brought one of its own to the UK.

Much like Google search the new job aggregation tool is free, and doesn't cost job sites or hunters any money to use. According to Google it'll be supported by ads, and no more ads than you'd usually find in search results. It'll also automatically list "the "freshest and most relevant" vacancies, based on the user's location, thanks to a partnership with the likes of The Guardian Jobs, Reed.co.uk, Haymarket, Gumtree, The Telegraph, Reach plc's totallylegal, CV-Library, totaljobs.com, LinkedIn, and Glassdoor.

Naturally Google's tool is just about being able to search for vacancies in one place, and like search results you'll still have to click through to a thirdparty website to get your application in. As for actually searching for them, you don't have to do very much hard work - simply search for 'X jobs' in Google and the system will bring up one of the Google Cards with a list of relevant listings for you to check out. Like so:

As you can see there's a save button on the right hand side of each listing, making it easier for you to come back and find your favourite vacancies later. As ever there's also an email notification service to keep you in the loop as and when new relevant jobs become available.

So next time you find yourself sick and tired of your boss, on the last straw with the colleague who keeps microwaving fish, or simply feel like you deserve more money for youe time and effort, Google's got another tool for you to check out. [Google via BBC News]
