Hello, I am Phil Martin, the CEO of Physicians For You. Originally from Southampton and West London in the UK, I have been living and loving recruitment, business development, sales and marketing for the last 25 years. Having been very fortunate to have travelled, lived and worked all over the world, I am very happy to now call Canada my home. I am very passionate about recruitment and truly love what I do every day. Its such a pleasure to be able to help physicians who are at any stage of their career, whether currently living in Canada, or looking to make the move here, secure fantastic roles in one of the most stunningly beautiful and friendliest countries in the world. I like to describe Canada as a family playground with so much to see and do. Whether you live in the city and urban areas or more rural, you are never far from scenic beauty all around you with all the lakes, waterfalls, mountains and vast terrain.
When I first came to Canada, my wife and I were based in Toronto, Ontario and after a few years there we moved to Vernon, British Columbia, where my wife is originally from. We met in Sao Paulo, Brazil many years ago and she is the reason I first decided to come to Canada to set up a medical recruitment company. Although I had been working in recruitment for many years in the UK and Australia, as an avid skier and mountain biker I knew this was where I wanted to be. Since arriving in Canada all those years ago I have fully embraced the BC and Canadian lifestyle and became a certified ski-instructor reaching my CSIA level 2 and also a certified mountain biking instructor with the PMBI level 1. Instructing is such a great way to get out in the beauty of nature, socialise and meet people, have fun and stay fit as well as improving my own skiing and biking skills which allows me to enjoy so much more of the fantastic terrain. More recently I have discovered a passion for yoga and meditation. I find it an essential practice every day that allows me to keep grounded and focused on the things that truly matter in life.
My wife Hedaya and I have built Physicians for You and our aspiration for the future is to continue to build and grow the most comprehensive medical recruitment company in Canada; a company built on integrity, hard work and the utmost care for everyone we work with. It is my sincere wish that we can help make the leap into the unknown with career and life plans as easy and as smooth of a transition as possible, and that is our dedication to our physicians every day.
