Hello, my name is Phil Martin and I am the Owner of Physicians For You. Originally from the UK - Southampton and West London, I have been living and loving Recruitment, Business Development, Sales and Marketing for over 20 years. I have been very lucky to live, travel and work all over the world and I am very happy to now call Canada my home. I am very passionate about recruitment and absolutely love what I do. I love being able to help Physicians who are looking to make the move to Canada, one of the most stunningly beautiful and friendliest countries in the world. I like to describe Canada as a family playground as everyone loves the outdoors here and with all the lakes, mountains and vast terrain available we just have so much choice for things to see and do.
I first moved to Toronto, Ontario in 2009 and after a few years there moved to Vernon, British Columbia, where my wife is originally from. We met back in 2008 in Sao Paulo, Brazil and she is the reason I first decided to come to Canada to set up a medical recruitment company. Although I had been doing it for many years in the UK and Australia as an avid skier I knew this was where I wanted to be based. Since arriving all those years ago I have since become a part time ski-instructor reaching my CSIA level 2 and am now working towards my level 3. I am very blessed to have SilverStar Mountain, the 3rd largest resort in British Columbia with 132 runs right on my doorstep. I also love downhill and cross country mountain biking which is something I only got into a few years ago but would now put it up there with my love for skiing. It has been a great way to have fun, stay fit and socialize.
My aspiration for the future is to continue to build and grow the largest and most comprehensive Medical Recruitment Company in Canada; a company built on integrity, hard work and the utmost care for everyone we work with. I want to help as many people as I can within the Medical community come over and enjoy the lifestyle and work/life balance that is available here. It truly is paradise and my sincerest wish is for all that make the leap into the unknown enjoy it as much as I do. I honestly wouldn’t live anywhere else.
