Non-Executive Board Members, Evolve Facility Services

National remit but head office is in Liverpool

£7,000 per annum, 9-10 days per year time commitment

About Evolve

Evolve Facility Services Ltd (Evolve) is a for-profit subsidiary of The Riverside Group Ltd (TRGL) and provides maintenance services for TRGL in England. It was created in 2010 from two existing businesses, OP Building Maintenance Services and JC Construction. The concept arose from the frustration of large PLCs dominating the marketplace and providing a service which the founders felt was becoming uncontrolled and offering a poor product within the sector. Since its acquisition, Evolve’s turnover has grown from £6.5m to around £43m and the organisation currently employs 438 members of staff. The business now provides cover for around 85% of Riverside’s stock on a wide range of activity including responsive repairs, planned maintenance, Retirement Living major upgrades and gas servicing.

About the role

Evolve currently has four directors on the Board and is seeking two additional non-executive directors to support the organisation’s growth and help shape the future success of the business. Experience of leading strategic business planning and building successful businesses in a commercial environment will be essential, as will the ability to provide strategic support and constructive challenge. Non-executive experience is not required, but experience of being a corporate board director in a medium-sized business would be an advantage, as would knowledge and experience of the housing sector.
