Review:

Google for Jobs is a free service that uses AI and machine learning to increase job post visibility by showing job postings in Google search results. Since it's completely free, it offers U.K. employers a great way to supplement their job posting efforts on other platforms to increase exposure.

Major U.K. companies that use Google for Jobs include Barclays, Deloitte, and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Leading job boards in the U.K., including Reed.co.uk and Totaljobs, have partnered with Google for Jobs.

Pros:

  • The service is free.
  • Once you've integrated your careers page with Google, your new jobs will show up in results as you add them.
  • There are resources on how to add structured data to posts.
  • You can post jobs to third-party sites that are already integrated with Google, so you don't have to change the code on your site.
  • The job posts are linked directly to your website.
  • Clicks to your website through your listing in the Google job search feature are automatically tagged, making it easy to measure results in Google Analytics.
  • Users can save job searches and create job alerts.
  • Job seekers can filter results by title, location, type, and employer.
  • Leading U.K. job boards that have partnered with Google for Jobs include Reed.co.uk and Totaljobs.

Cons:

  • Google for Jobs does not have a resume database for employers to access.
  • Employers have to research third-party sites to find out if they use Google's structured data.
  • Google for Jobs does not offer paid features to enhance the visibility of job posts.

How to Post Your Jobs on Google:

  1. Create a job listing on your company's career page.
  2. Add structured data to your job postings according to the instructions provided by Google.
  3. Use sitemaps to tell Google when you have added or removed a job posting from your website.
  4. Use Google search console to make sure the ad is being indexed and to track your results.

Google for Jobs vs. Indeed:

Indeed is a popular and trusted job board that offers built-in screening tools and a resume database of over 245 million resumes. However, you must pay for your job posts to stay prominent on the site. If you can get the Google for Jobs structured data set up correctly, your job posts will appear in Google search results for free.

Google for Jobs vs. Find a job:

Find a job is an employment portal operated by the U.K. government. Like Google for Jobs, it is completely free for job seekers and employers. While Find a job is limited to the U.K., Google for Jobs indexes posts from all over the world. However, job seekers need to open the feature to search for international opportunities.

Google for Jobs vs. Reed.co.uk:

Unlike Google for Jobs, Reed.co.uk, one of the most popular job boards in the U.K., features a resume database and a range of resources for employers and job seekers. While Google for Jobs is free, Reed.co.uk only offers paid job posting packages, which start at £89.00 +VAT per post.

FAQs:

How do I post a job for free on Google?

To post a job for free on Google, you just need to configure your jobs page correctly so that it integrates with Google for Jobs, or use a third-party service to do it for you.

Can any business post a job on Google for free?

Yes, as of now it appears any business can use this service if the jobs are posted in English. It does not appear that the Google job search engine has been rolled out to non-English-speaking countries yet.

Is there a Google job posting site?

Not really. Rather than create a separate Google for Jobs website, or Google job board, Google job listings show up in organic search results. So if you search for something like "Engineer jobs near me" on Google's home page, you'd see Google job postings for that search among the results.

How long does it take for my Google job listing to show up?

According to Google, it may take several days for a job opening you published on your website to be indexed by Google for Jobs.
