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 before then submitting them.

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:

  • See the seafarers in the database on the right.
  • Search for a specific job or seafarer in the search bars at the top.
  • Find out more information about the position.

First of all, we’re going to look at the position and get more information about it.

How to review an unqualified seafarer

Click on Not Qualified next to the seafarer’s name. You will see the page below. In our example you can see that 2 documents are missing: the seafarer's GMDSS Endorsement and their Advanced Fire Fighting certificate.

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.
