The Ministry of Justice and Warwickshire Probation Trust are pleased to announce the appointment of Mike Coult as a new Member of Warwickshire Probation Trust from 1 April 2013.

His term of office will run for a period of one year from that date with a possible extension for a second year. The post is remunerated at the rate of £15.40 per hour.

Warwickshire is one of thirty-five Probation Trusts in England and Wales, which deliver probation services on behalf of the Secretary of State for Justice.

Probation Trusts work closely with other criminal justice agencies, including the police and prisons, to protect the public, punish offenders, assist victims of crime and reduce re-offending by supporting the rehabilitation of offenders.

Mike Coult lives in Nuneaton. He is a retired member of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy. He previously worked for 40 years in local government, holding senior positions in financial management and service transformation.

Mike Coult does not hold any other Ministerial public appointments.

The appointment as Member of Warwickshire Probation Trust has been made in accordance with the Code of Practice for Ministerial Appointments to Public Bodies. All appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees’ political activity (if any declared) to be made public. Mike Coult has not declared any political activity.
