When you log into your Martide account you’ll see that there are two options in the header bar at the top: Candidates and Seafarers.

  • Candidates are people whose profiles were created by your company or by an employer.
  • Seafarers are candidates who you have approved for a position. You can approve seafarers and you can apply them to positions. You can also create new seafarer profiles.

As a manning agent, there are 2 ways you can move someone from the Candidate database into the Seafarer database:

  1. When you are certain a candidate is suitable for the position, click the check box at the end of their name (on the Candidates page) and then click Approve. They will be automatically moved to the Seafarer page.
  2. If you already know the person and are sure they are suitable for a position you can create a profile for them directly in the Seafarer page. (See the 2nd image below.)

Using your Seafarers Page

To get started, log into your account and click on Seafarers in the header bar.
