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. So what’s the difference between them?

  • Candidates are people who have applied for a job with you or who were created by your company/employees/co-workers.
  • Seafarers are people who have previously worked for you - i.e. ex-crew.

To understand your Candidates page, click here. Please note that for a person to be moved to the Seafarer page, you will need to add them to a position on the Candidates page and hire them. They will then move from Candidate to Seafarer.

Using the Seafarers Page

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