Do you love the thrill of the chase? Do you know how to spot a decent yarn? Do you have an exceptional eye and ear for great talent?

Newstalk ZB is on the hunt for a driven, up and coming news producer.

Producing Early Edition with Kate Hawkesby, this is an opportunity to be part of the morning team that sets the day’s news agenda.

You will have a great understanding of local and international news, and know how to drive a story along. You will present the day’s news in a way that engages our audience.

Working for Early Edition requires flexibility, and the ability to adapt to sometimes rapidly changing scenarios. You will happily receive direction, and equally operate efficiently on your own.

In return, we will offer you a challenging yet supportive environment. You will be given the opportunity to learn from some of the best interviewers and producers in the country, in our award-winning newsroom.

This role would also give you the skills to see news from a broader perspective, and be part of the driving force behind how these shows come together.

Production experience isn’t necessary, but a good attitude is. You will need a background in journalism, and preferably broadcasting experience.
