Senior News Producer – This Morning190001M2 
Senior News Producer – This Morning

We have a fantastic opportunity to join our award-winning This Morning team as Senior News Producer.
From booking front page guests and casting debates that will get the nation talking, to working with the royal family and government on major projects, you’ll be just as comfortable working on breaking news as you are at managing long term plans. You will possess strong editorial judgement and be responsible for generating ideas and taking those ideas from planning stage to production. 
In recent months our brilliant news team has secured world exclusives with the Thai cave boys, Alfie Evans’ mum and dad – who announced their pregnancy news and Prince Philip’s crash victim. But here’s where This Morning is different to every other news room you’ll have worked in… we’ve also been behind headline making interviews with the likes of Mr. Tickle, Britain’s sexiest cow (yes, really) and the man with the world’s first bionic penis. We’re looking for journalists with equal amounts of experience and creativity, as well as a sense of fun.
As Senior News Producer you will provide support to both the Head of News & Showbiz and Deputy News Editor in the day to day management of the team, ensuring editorial content is maintained to the highest standard. You will be bursting with ideas and contacts, with the ability to secure exclusive stories ahead of our rivals. Able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines, you’ll be resilient, driven and possess true leadership qualities. 

A journalistic background and experience of working in a live broadcast environment is a must. Previous experience of live television is essential. You must also have a good understanding of compliance guidelines and OFCOM regulations.

If you thrive on the buzz of working on a live network programme and if you think your ideas and enthusiasm will keep our audience entertained and informed then we’d love to hear from you.

Closing Date: Friday 5th July

Our people are our greatest asset and, as an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds to work both in front of and behind the cameras.
