We established PHM Search as a technical recruitment firm in 2001. Located in London, Ontario, Canada (two hours west of Toronto), we were born out of a vision to provide quality and results-focused recruitment services for candidates and clients within the Engineering market place.
Today we have evolved into a specialized, but capable full service search firm with domain expertise across multiple technical verticals, although engineering continues to remain one of our core practice areas.
Our “Making Technical Recruitment Simple” philosophy resonates with our company in every facet of how we service, communicate and work with our candidates and clients. By treating our relationships as long term business partners, we are able to focus on mutually beneficial results, rather than acute rewards.
We invite you to share your story with us, be it for career or job change or recruiting difficult talent so that we can grow together to make the next seventeen years (or more) at PHM as memorable as the last!
PHM is defined by the values that we stand, work and aspire to live by. These transcend all aspects of our company, from hiring our amazing tribe members, to innovating processes and technologies, and delivering superior service and results to our clients and candidates.
We are committed to these values by adhering and championing these ideals as they clearly underpin our journey both in and out of our work lives at PHM.
The purpose of PHM is making technical recruitment simple for candidates and clients to respectively change jobs or recruit technical talent. We deliver this through superior knowledge, quality, and service all the while earning your trust to deliver exceptional results.
Every company talks about how important culture is, but at PHM, we are continuously living, breathing and defining this identity in a dynamic and inclusive way. We don’t think that one size fits all. We embrace many different qualities, perspectives and personalities. What we all share in common is the desire and vision to be the planet’s best tribe of recruiters, bar none.
When you become one of us, you will be challenged beyond what you thought possible, but championed to succeed and supported by a team that wants you to rise to and above the occasion. With such achievements you can naturally expect to be rewarded, but rather than rest on your laurels we elevate the bar that much more so that you are always reaching to blast through your next ceiling.
Since PHM wants to groom the world’s most highly trained, knowledgeable and capable recruiters, your mission, should you accept it is to immerse yourself in our tribe with unwavering faith and commitment. (We think this is more reasonable than asking you for your first born... unless they turn out to be our next superstar recruiter.)
Talent | Principal Consultant
I’d like to think that I’m more than the payer of bills and collector of receivables, in order that the lights stay on. You’d have to ask my amazing tribe of smart, dedicated, passionate and driven team members, whether they think I do more than that. Personally I believe that after eighteen years of being the self-proclaimed Patriarch of PHM, I deserve to play whatever I want on Sonos, whether it dates me or not! In all seriousness, although I provide the strategic direction for PHM, I’m still (and always) will be a recruiter at heart and I’m grateful to have surrounded myself with incredibly engaged team members, candidates and clients that continue to inspire and give me my work purpose to serve them in any way I can.
Get to know me:
I'm passionate about animals, owning a rescue greyhound (the fastest couch potato I've ever known) and a cat (who puts up with her). When not recruiting and helping whoever needs or wants it at the firm, you can likely find me spending summers by the pool, travelling abroad, hanging with friends and family and binge-watching Netflix. I'm married to my incredibly beautiful, witty, endearing and compassionate wife who thankfully tolerates when lines get blurred between work and life. To her I extend infinite thank yous (and apologies when suited).
Talent | Team Leader
Though I may like my cars fast and my movies nerdy, I take pride in taking the time to get to know our clients and candidates on a deeper level. As our recruitment team leader I'm focused on fostering our commitment to a simple and easy-to-use recruitment process. I oversee every part of the recruitment cycle, from; the initial conversation with our clients, to speaking to the best candidates out there, to walking everyone through the interview process and finally fitting the right candidate into the perfect role. We understand how daunting and complicated it can be to find the perfect candidate or make the right career move. At PHM our goal is to make finding the right candidate or new opportunity as painless as possible by gaining a clear understanding of your needs, and then finding the right fit for you. Whether you are a company looking for that perfect engineer or a technical professional who is looking for a strategic career boost, please feel free to reach out to PHM, where we make technical recruitment simple.

I am an avid Formula One fan, history buff, and all around nerd. If you're not looking to chat about a career move, I am happy to talk about the last F1 race, Star Wars movie, or video game. There's a good chance I have an opinion and (as my colleagues can tell you) I will be happy to share it
Talent | Consultant
I am a Recruiter with PHM Search. I work on every part of the recruitment cycle from initial outreach all the way through to the interview, and, if we do everything just right, finish everything off with an offer. Being a headhunter, I often find myself in the middle of what our clients are looking for versus what my candidates want out of their career. My job includes consulting with the candidate and keeping them informed every step of the way. This includes finding out what is truly important to our candidates, making sure they have clear expectations, preparing for the interview, directing compensation negotiations, and finally discussing resigning from their former employer. All of this can be very daunting and intimidating to someone who is job searching on their own, so my goal is to make everything as simple for every party; letting everyone involved make a well-informed decision. Making a substantial change can be scary, but if you think it's the right time, please reach out. I strive to make recruitment simple.

I am an avid sports fan, cinephile, and a self-proclaimed Catan All-Star. If you’re tired of always chatting to Recruiters about jobs then feel free to bring up the Montreal Canadiens, Blade Runner, or your favourite board game, there’s a good chance I have played it, and if I haven’t I want to know about it.

I'm Hannah! The behind the scenes master of our tribe. Even though you might not have talked to me through email or the phone, you can guarantee that I had a hand in your relationship with our team.

In my free time you can generally find me watching cable and scrolling cat gifs.
Talent | Support Consultant
As a Talent Support Specialist my job is to qualify the perfect candidate for our clients, putting the majority of my time and effort into bringing talent to the table for our very capable recruiters. My role allows me to combine my inherent qualities of having a genuine interest in people, building relationships, and giving people the tools they need to be successful. While I spend most of my day communicating with candidates and keeping the recruiters on their toes, I've quickly become a jack of all trades. Some of my responsibilities include: passive outreach to candidates via LinkedIn and email, scheduling the recruiters time and managing their calendars, partaking in the hiring process for new PHM team members, directing our office phone calls, providing tea and Band-Aids to sickly team members, and scheduling some more!
My role at PHM allows us to continually foster the pride we take in being able to see the potential in people and connecting them to the best opportunities, making recruitment simple.

During the summer, you can find me outside nerding out over my favourite Harry Potter or Star Wars book. In the winter, you will either find me curled up and hiding from the cold, or embracing the snow on a dogsled.

As Talent Marketing Consultant, I manage our digital communications and ensure that our online presence engages our community of technical professionals. I also connect with and qualify candidates for our growing team of recruitment consultants.

I am learning to assist my candidates through every step and facet of the recruitment process, but most importantly to help them realize whether making a change in their careers or moving jobs is really in their best interests.

I admit (like many) I am a Netflix fan, typically you can find me watching a crime documentary. When not glued to streaming media, I'm an adventurous foodie, which to me means trying out a new recipe. I'm also a live music aficionado, always scouting out the next event to attend.
To become one of us we need an 8x11 glossy airbrushed head shot exemplifying your best features (just kidding, don't send a photo, that would be illegal), with a 50 word or less summary of why you want to endure the rigours and at times superior emotional turmoil of being a recruiter with our firm.
How about we give you the gift of self-discovery and you can decide to choose the best way to get noticed? (Yes this could be a test).Cheers.
I didn't know recruiting could be this easy...as a Human Resources manager for a large engineering firm, we have worked with a lot of search agencies. PHM is the first and only company that truly understands the types of people we recruit for and delivers us high quality and timely candidates for some of the most difficult positions we assign them.
