JOB VACANCY: help football kick cancer into touch

Brighton & Hove Albion FC, the English Footbal League Club, is seeking three  new signings to help it kick cancer into touch .

The jobs – as health co-ordinator and health trainer – are part-time and run for 12 months. They aim to tackle cancer in Brighton & Hove by improve people’s awareness  of symptoms and increasing early diagnosis.

This is particularly important for men who are more likely to die of all the main cancers than both men and women experience and are considerably more likely to have undiagnosed cancer.

A good example is bowel cancer where the NHS screening programmes are less likely to reach men than women and men are around 50% more likely to be living with undiagnosed bowel cancer.

The Albion is one of the local sports clubs working on the Improving Male Health Through Sport initiative chaired by The Men’s Network
