ITV's Daytime flagship show, This Morning, is on the hunt for a Deputy Head of Entertainment to keep Britain’s biggest and best-loved morning programme where it belongs - one of the most talked about shows in the UK.

It’s a rare opportunity to join a major network television programme at the top of its game and at such a senior level.

Along with the Head of News & Entertainment, this new role will help to lead our two Entertainment producers whilst also booking celebrity guests - those on promo and also those with a human interest story to tell.

You will be overseeing a team who will be responsible for writing briefs, scripting entertainment items, attending events, producing live items and booking the highest calibre of guests.

You will possess strong creative and editorial judgement and be responsible for generating dazzling ideas. The ideal candidate will be able to spot a great human interest story with an entertainment angle and deliver all the elements to the programme on a daily basis.

Experience of working on a live news magazine show is essential. You will also be a dab hand at managing on screen talent, developing new faces and generating ideas every day. You will also have a comprehensive understanding of legal and compliance guidelines and OFCOM regulations.

So, if you thrive in a fast-paced live television environment where no two days are the same and you possess the creative flair that will help us make must-see TV every day, then we’d love to hear from you. 

Closing date for applications: Wednesday 31 October 2018

ITV is committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce and we strongly encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds and as a Disability Confident employer we have committed to interview all candidates with a disability whose application meets the minimum criteria for the role.
