Here you can:

  • Enter the name of your contract in the Name bar.
  • Type (or copy and paste) your contract directly into the white box.
  • Format the text using the usual methods: bold, italic, bullet points, font, etc.
  • Use Merge Tags to insert info from the candidate’s profile into the final contract.
  • Make the contract box narrower or wider by hovering your mouse over the 2 small lines at the bottom of the box. An up/down arrow will appear and you can drag the box up or down:

How to edit or delete an existing Contract Template

On the main Contract Template page click on either the Edit or Delete buttons in a contract’s box.

If you click Edit you will be taken back to your Contract Template. The page is exactly the same as when you created the template - simply make your edits in the page and click Save.

To delete a contract click Delete. Make sure you’re certain you want to remove it as you won’t get a warning and the template will be deleted right away!

A note about Contract Templates

  • As the name suggests, these contracts are templates. The final contract will be generated at the Contract Sign stage on the Recruitment page / in the Recruitment Pipeline. The contract will be generated per position (vessel/rank), per candidate.
