In June 2017, Google made a significant step into the online recruitment market when they formally launched a new search experience to help jobseekers find jobs more efficiently in the US.
Madgex teamed up with Google to test and launch the new search feature in the US and have been working together closely in preparation for the UK launch. As of today (July 17, 2018), Google has officially launched the Google for Jobs search experience in the United Kingdom.
As the industry-leading job board provider, Madgex have once again been working in partnership with Google and can continue to offer their clients first-to-market access to these new initiatives.
Thanks to Madgex’s partnership with Google in the US, and their continued work with the UK launch, they have ensured their market-leading job board software is fully integrated and ready to go. Madgex-powered job boards in the UK will be able to take advantage from today – day one.
Madgex have written a lot on the practicalities and impact of Google for Jobs in the US, producing useful guides and informative webinars – so many in the UK will be familiar with how Google for Jobs works. One search will now bring up multiple jobs from multiple sources. The job description and details are all viewable within the Google experience, and it’s only when the person clicks the ‘apply’ button that they will be taken to the appropriate job board.
As Madgex CEO Dan Meadows says: “We power some of the world’s leading brands in online recruitment, which led to Google approaching us to work on this new feature in the US last year. Now that they’re ready to roll out in the UK we were more than happy to work together again and help optimize the experience prior to launch.”
“Ensuring Madgex-powered job boards are integrated with this new Google feature is part of our drive to provide our clients with the best functionality and ensure our job boards lead the way in recruitment technology.”
Only jobs posted on job boards that integrate with Google will receive traffic from this new, enhanced search feature. Madgex’s exclusive analysis of their Google-integrated US job boards shows a significant uplift in traffic. This means it is now more important than ever for job board owners to ensure they are partnered with the right technology provider.
