Neil McCawley finds value in mentoring

His career started at Barclays Bank, where he spent 21 years in various roles, starting in branch banking and ending up as an HR project manager working on reward- and non-reward-related projects.

Outside benefits and reward, McCawley has been involved in the National Mentoring Consortium, which presented Wolseley UK with its New Employer of the Year award in 2013.

“I’m mentoring a student from Brunel University,” says McCawley. “She doesn’t really need any help, except for boosting her confidence. That’s one of the most rewarding things I’ve done.”

McCawley was listed as one of the Hot 100 Benefits managers by Employee Benefits in 2012 .
