When an employer chooses your manning agency to help fill a vacancy you will need to see if you have suitable seafarers to put forward and then submit them. You can do this via the Find Jobs page.

Please note that only seafarers can be applied, not candidates.

How to use the Find Job page

Log into your Martide account. You need the Find Job page - it’s the first page you see when you log in. The page looks like this:

Please note that as a manning agent, you are only able to submit 'seafarers' for positions, and not 'candidates'. Candidates are people who have applied for a job with an employer. Seafarers are people who have previously worked for you/an employer. To read more about the difference between candidates and seafarers, please click here.
