Due to internal promotion, NZ On Air has a vacancy in its TV funding team. It's a rare chance to join a team devoted to supporting local programmes, widely enjoyed by audiences, that contribute to New Zealand's screen culture. NZ On Air funding supports television as diverse as Go Girls, The Almighty Johnsons, Country Calendar and Attitude.
The Television Funding Coordinator will report to the Television Manager and look after contracting and funding administration and compliance. You'll also help write Board papers, analyse the performance of funded programmes, and always be on the lookout for ways to do things better and smarter. You'll be an effective and helpful team player, representing NZ On Air well in your contacts with programme makers.
You may be a recent graduate with some relevant work experience in contracting or compliance and good office skills. Or you may have screen industry experience and want to learn more about the wider funding environment. Either way, you'll be a spreadsheet whizz, be a good, clear writer able to analyse and provide dispassionate advice, be a stickler for detail, and be highly organised. And you'll love television in general, and local content in particular.
NZ On Air is an equal opportunities employer. Written applications, including a full CV plus a letter explaining why we need you, should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by midday, Monday 13 June.
