There are a few different stages to creating a job and managing your candidates so we’re going to walk you through them to get you started.

The first thing to note is that vacancies in Martide are known as Assignments.

Please also note that the Assignments page used to be called Recruitment.

Understanding your Assignments page

Log in to your Martide account and click on Assignments in the menu on the left hand side of the page. You’ll be taken to a page that looks like this:

Here you can:

  • Create a new Assignment.
  • See your vessels, the rank, how many candidates have applied, if any candidates are ex-crew, how many have been hired, the change over date, and status.
  • Filter Assignments by Vessel, Seafarer Rank, Change Over, Status, Applied Candidates and Advertising Agent by clicking the buttons at the top of the page.
  • Click on an Assignment to view its details.
  • Change the Status of an Assignment to Open or Closed.
  • Sort your Assignments alphabetically or numerically by clicking the pyramid icon next to Vessel, Rank, Hired or Status.
  • Edit an open Assignment by clicking the pen icon to the far right of an Assignment.
  • Delete an Assignment by clicking the trash can icon to the far right of an Assignment.

How to create a new Assignment

Click the +Add assignment button in the top right corner:

Here you can:

  • Enter the time with a technical operator that you need a candidate to hold and select whether that's in years or months.
  • Enter the time in rank that you need a candidate to hold and select whether that's in years or months.
  • Enter the time on a vessel that you need a candidate to have and select whether that's in years or months.
  • Write a description of the Assignment in the text box.

When you’re done, click Next. This will take you to the Required Documents section.

Required documents for an Assignment

The Required Documents section when you are creating an Assignment looks like this:

Here you can:

  • See which documents have been specified in order for a candidate to a) apply and b) to be hired.

In our example we're keeping it simple with one document but you will have more.

Click Next when you're done. This will take you to the Advertising section.

How to advertise your Assignment

You will be taken to the Advertising section. It looks like this:

As you can see from the image above, you have two options:

  1. Public: After posting a public position, your basic requirements will be displayed on Martide’s job page. We’ll look for candidates for your position by checking our database. Candidates can also apply directly.
  2. Private: This lets you send your vacancies to manning agents. Unlike public vacancies, agents will be able to see all the information you included in your Data Template.

In our example above the Public option is turned on (showing blue) and the Private option is turned off (this will show gray). To change the settings, slide the button across.

Please note that unless you have used Alternative Documents to override your Data Template, only candidates holding all relevant documents will be able to apply.

Scroll further down the page and you will see:

Here you can:

  • Select which manning agent(s) you want to use.
  • Write a comment to the manning agent(s).
  • Write a comment to the candidates.

Note: If you don’t see one of your manning agents in this section, go to Settings > Manning Agent. There you can choose the manning agents you want to see as an option.

Click the Publish your job button when you're done:
