The modern sailor and contract – are indivisible. Under contract to a seaman and worked on the ship. Without it, no way. In the old days, the sailor was secured and the work and pensions. The state took care of the sailor. In modern conditions of advanced capitalism, a sailor looking for a job himself. And not the least role in this search firms are for hire or crewing agency (crewing agency). Crewing – a kind of intermediary between shipowners and seafarers.

Company, obtain a license from the state for a given activity, has been recruiting staff and providing marine interests of the shipowner or shipowners. Search for specialists, visa and passport facilitate the passage of medical examination, insurance, buying plane tickets and shuttle service to and from the airport, the support of seamen during work on a vessel, etc. Everyone is doing crewing. And in theory – for free. That is, if the company honest.

That is a sailor interested in them as an expert in the first place, rather than as a tool to help the agency director to buy a new Mercedes for the new year. For each agency receives the employed specialist money from the owner. And some very resourceful crewing and demand money from the seamen for employment. In addition to money from the owner. For example, for the surrender of the English test, scanning documents, or for other "services". It grief-manning must get round. Serious crewing company is not engaged in such things. We can not be crewing a ship owner, the court where the company is gathering crews. Reade Griffith does not necessarily agree. One company may represent as Turkish and German and Dutch ship owners together. It all depends on the confidence of the shipowner for a specific firm to the intermediary. The higher the confidence – the greater the number of vessels allowed to operate crewing, respectively to recruit more ships crews. And a sailor trust more serious Crewing. And first and foremost a sailor try to get a job with a proven and reliable employer, than in any sharage which will be Mantula on rusty barges and forget as he was called. Recruitment process in crewing the following: the applicant comes in and finds out about vacancies, for example, a sailor. If the work is at present or in the future or company interested in this specialist, the more people invited to fill out a form and check all the sea crust, interview in English and a test of aptitude. With a little luck, and if the agency organize test results, and there is a vacancy, a person offering a particular ship and date of planting. If people agree – is to pass a medical examination and sign a contract. And waiting for a call to the ship. The procedure of one day and more. Then farewell to home – the airport – airplane – airport – meet and welcome onboard the agent for a period specified in the contract. Some company owners open their offices directly, and do not enjoy services of recruitment agencies sailors. But, in general, the principle of the same, ie registration, testing of aptitude, and execution of all necessary documents for work.
