Parole Board appoints Director of Operations

Parole Board appoints Miranda Biddle to the new post of Director of Operations.


I am delighted to welcome Miranda Biddle as the new Director of Operations at the Parole Board. Miranda has worked within criminal justice for over 20 years across the Probation Service, Prison Service, psychology and drugs services.

She has worked with offenders in the community and prisons and has experience of working in statutory, independent and private sectors. Her most recent post was working as a deputy director at HMP Peterborough (the only purpose-built prison for men and women).

Miranda started with us on Monday, 8 December and will lead the Operations Team through the huge change agenda brought about by the Fair for the Future project (in response to the Osborn, Booth and Reilly judgment) and beyond, to ensure the team is positioned to provide an effective and efficient service to members and stakeholders.

Miranda can be contacted on the following email address:
