The feature, Google's latest move to centralise services within its popular search engine, will rival existing job vacancy aggregators such as Indeed.

Job seekers will still need to click-through to third-party providers from the Google Search results to find out additional details postings and send a CV or cover letter. The world's largest search engine now shows everything from cinema times to flight statuses, and in the United Kingdom, is about to get even more useful with the introduction of job openings.

Already available in the United States, any provider can make sure their jobs appear in the service by marking their listings to show up in the feature.

A number of job listing sites are part of the rollout, including Reed, Haymarket, CV-Library, and Gumtree, and roles advertised on these sites will be aggregated into Google's search results. Keeping a track of all the listings you're interested in is a lot easier as you can save individual jobs with a single tap so that they are accessible across any of your devices.

"What job seekers get is the ability to find jobs from all over the internet", product manager Joy Xi explained.

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

Google shares closed lower in the US Monday, as the tech giant launched its job-hunting service in the UK.

If you're in the United Kingdom, 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". You'll then be able to filter by category, location, salary, and more, before being provided employer reviews and ratings to help you make your mind up.

In addition, she said, the firm's Maps data had been referenced to let users see how long it would take to commute to each post.

The company says it has seen an increase in the number of companies showing jobs in its search engine and has already connected tens of millions of people around the world to new job opportunities.
