Maritime Connector began as a regional service connecting Croatian shipowners with Croatian seafarers, before expanding through international collaboration with shipping companies looking for Croatian officers and crew.
The company says that the English version of the website continued to attract non-Croatian officers, leading Maritime Connector to completely redesign the platform, so that it is now available in English only and welcomes seafarers from all over Europe and Asia to register their CV into the database.
"Seafarers are very satisfied with the possibility of having information on the job openings with various ship operators, managers and crewing agencies at one place. This helps them to get information about new maritime jobs in time, and shortens the marine vacancies search. Also, they get the chance to send their CV directly to the company, which guarantees equality of opportunities and transparency," the company said.
"The companies that work with us are satisfied as well. The crew search is now more efficient, both in terms of time and money. Besides shipping operators, we collaborate with some of the largest and oldest crewing agents in the world – Wilhelmsen Ship Management, BSM and V.Ships and all of these companies use us both for crew search and PR."
"Furthermore, by getting a great number of applications to their seagoing vacancies, companies are enabled to choose the very best crew. It is simple – nobody can make a better choice for your company than you can."
