The current advances in technology within the Maritime industry are beneficial for seafarers, shipowners and manning agents alike. Maritime careers are changing as open communication channels begin to balance control on the seafarers side.
Integrated recruiting provides control, transparency and access to a wider range of supported applications/functions/features. In a hyper-specialized industry like maritime recruitment, the prospect can seem arduous. Keeping MLC:2006 regulations, certification checks and candidate interviews in mind, the digitization of the crewing procedures is just the tip of the iceberg. A shipowner’s requirement for multinational crew, means different regulatory frameworks, that have to be tackled by an enormous amount of administration effort.
Even if the digital transformation slowly gains acceptance in the maritime industry, this might be the reason why manning agents and shipowners were not following this trend in digitizing their crewing recruitment procedures. It has been argued that transparency, meaning access to information and resources in the recruitment sector, are limited this way. Integrated systems provides boundless admittance to recruitment resources from around the globe.
