Lincolnshire Sport is a small, friendly charity working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support.

We are looking to recruit two Macmillan Physical Activity Practitioners to support people living with and beyond cancer across Lincolnshire.

Behaviour change professionals are needed for a two year pilot, funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, as part of the emerging survivorship agenda.
