News Producer (part time) – This Morning
12 Month Fixed Term Contract
This Morning features a broad mix of topical news items and human interest stories. A fantastic opportunity has now arisen to join us as a News Producer.
In this varied and busy role, you’ll be involved in the booking of newsmaking guests and exclusives, as well as both serious and light-hearted human interest stories. You’ll need to be a tenacious self-starter with an impressive contacts book and have strong relationships with news agencies, freelance journalists, newspapers, ITN and other media organisations.
You will have a journalistic background and excellent knowledge of current affairs, especially of the issues that matter to our viewers. You’ll need to be bursting with original story ideas and ‘This Morning’ takes on the big news of the day.
You’ll be a team player, working collaboratively with other members of the Newsdesk, as well as with different departments across the programme.
You will be able to work under pressure to tight deadlines and not be fazed by competing demands on your time.
You must have a flexible approach to work as you will be working to a shift pattern which will include weekends and bank holidays.
Preferably you’ll also have experience of working in a live broadcast environment.
If you’d thrive on the buzz of securing exclusives and setting the news agenda on a live network programme, we’d love to hear from you.
Closing Date for applications: Friday 8th January 2021
