When you log in to your Martide account you will notice that there are links in the navigation bar both for Candidates and for Seafarers. So what’s the difference between them?

Candidates and Seafarers mean slightly different things depending on whether you’re a shipowner / manager or a manning agent. This is what they mean to you as a manning agent and what you can and can’t do in Martide’s platform with these two groups of people.

The difference between Candidates and Seafarers

Seafarers

  • A Seafarer is a Candidate who has been approved by you.
