The James Kane Foundation are looking for a Foundation Manager to assist the Trustees in developing the strategy, structures, processes and relationships to ensure that it meets its aims.

James Kane, the owner of JM Kane Precision Engineering Limited, bequeathed his shareholding to a charitable foundation – ‘The James Kane Foundation’.

Set up in 2016, its key purpose is to advance education for people living in the Portadown area and across Northern Ireland. This is to be achieved through the provision of grants to enable access to training and skills to develop learning and improve employment prospects.

The Foundation has a board of Trustees which requires a Foundation Manager to provide daily management including operational and Foundation governance management to enable the charity to deliver its objectives.

The Foundation is registered with both Companies House and the Charity Commission for NI, as required.

It is anticipated that the Foundation will allocate in the region of £500,000 each year and have a lifespan of approximately ten years by which time it will have spent down the entirety of the bequest.

The job will be based pre-dominantly out of Clifton House in Belfast.
