With Close Up it’s the story that counts!


Vacancy Number - 3266

Close Up is New Zealand’s leading daily current affairs programme. It’s a programme that thrives on creativity, a hunger for answers, and a desire to put the newsmakers of the day under the microscope.

We are looking for a line up producer to drive the programme’s content on a daily basis. Along with the Executive Producer, you will be managing and leading a team of producers and reporters driven to be the best daily current affairs programme in the country.

You will have experience in producing live television, experience in managing the interview structure for live interviews, you will have an ability to find interview talent, sub edit scripts, and work out what are the critical stories and pictures to promote the programme.

You will have planning expertise and a flair for live television.

TVNZ is a celebration of New Zealand. Over the past year we’ve been proud to share experiences with New Zealanders in more diverse ways, across more media platforms, than ever before.

Every day, more than 1.6 million New Zealanders turn to TVNZ for their news and current affairs fix. They are tuning into television, of course, but are also consuming information via digital TV, over the internet and on their mobile phones.

We are looking for people who embrace this media revolution and are keen to be part of TVNZ News and Current Affairs through the next phase in our development. To keep pace with this change we are modifying our structure and multi-skilling our journalists. We’re implementing best practices from the greatest news organisations in the world so that we will always be considered one of them.

The goal is simple really – to ensure that New Zealanders have access to unrivalled news and current affairs, no matter where, no matter when.
