Google’s Jobs Search now available in Nigeria, South Africa, and Nigeria

In Kenya, job openings are among the most searched terms on Google. That is according to Charles Murito, the Google Kenya, country manager.

The essence of getting jobs is something that is critical across Africans. With Kenya’s high unemployment rate, this new job Search experience will help the millions of Kenyans searching for new opportunities,” said Murito.

News of Google for Jobs being unveiled in Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa was first announced at the Google I/O last year. This feature does not actually list available jobs. Instead, it aggregates job openings listed from various platforms online.


In Kenya, the Google for Jobs feature is aggregating job openings from BrighterMonday and Fuzu. Google is also in talks with other eligible platforms in order to add more aggregated job openings to the platform.

tomize the search result by filtering it according to the job category you are interested in; e.g., the job title, location, date posted, job listings from a particular company, etc. You can also bookmark this feature and turn on alerts for a specific type of job openings.

No Spam and cases of Fraud
