Angus Warmbath, the principal and founder of Beecoz, commenced in Executive Recruitment in 1994 with Beilby, in Sydney NSW. After 3-years there and as State Manager, he realised that working in rather than on the business was his forte.
In 2001, with new family, he moved to Brisbane QLD and was called to continue working with his Sydney clients.
Proving location was irrelevant to outcome, a now National focus helped his valued clients across many disciplines, and led to resourcing of senior staff in every major city in A/NZ as well as key locations across APAC – Macau, Singapore, Shanghai.
Beecoz P/L was established in June 2003, operating simply as a trading entity behind larger, member-based companies until 2013.
In 2009, as the GFC impacted recruitment, Angus became accredited and delivered group and individual Career Transition programs & support to 100s of employees whose positions were made redundant.
Angus comments that “Delivering benefit to individuals has been truly rewarding, personally”.

Have you wondered sometimes how some people seem to land that job or promotion with barely relevant skills or experience? Have you approached the job market thinking just to get a job you can do, rather than one you really want to do? It doesn’t have to be that way…
Since 2009, when certified by Donington, a leading International Career Transition (formerly Outplacement) services provider, Angus has delivered workshops and individual programs to 100s of Australian workers.
Many companies were dramatically impacted by the GFC, some relocated production facilities overseas, a number of operations simply restructured. In such circumstances, loyal and capable staff had their positions made redundant – they were not made redundant, their positions no longer existed.
Tailored programs were considered and offered, relevant to the needs of both company and their departing staff. These included group workshops with extended follow-up, individual programs, face-to-face, phone and virtual consulting; for people who had performed their duties in production/operations, administration, sales/customer service, management – in all disciplines, at all levels.
Subsequently, the skills developed led Angus to offer similar services to job-seekers who could value assistance technically or personally in achieving their “dream-job” – that is always the ultimate aim. Although the dream or ideal role is not always available right now, if you don’t know what it looks like, it will rarely be achieved.
- Resume – what is it for, what should be in it?
- LinkedIn – be found and find your network
- Hidden job market – if only a third of jobs are advertised…
- Interview techniques – practice makes perfect
- Transferable skills – looking outside “your industry”
- Cover letters and selection criteria
- Future-proofing your career
- Tailored to YOU!
- Network in your industry – someone you know and who knows you offers least risk
- Future-proof your business by developing your staff wherever possible – if an opening occurs, they may not be able to step up fully but they’ll be able to assume some additional responsibility
- Incentivise your team – pay them a bonus if they recommend someone who stays longer than 3-mths (its cheaper than a recruiter and no one will recommend a team member who doesn’t reflect well)
- Assess any external consultant, not just the company, in depth – they are a brand representative for your business in the market
- Your CV serves one purpose – to advance you through to the next stage
- Your CV is an advertisement, it is not your life-story; it needs to hook interest
- Consider who is reading your resume more than who is writing it!
- KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid
- Keep your References private and informed
