We inspire with our products, topics, and brands as well as our moderators, models, and experts throughout all channels. Be it TV, online, social media, or mobile: True to our consistent omnichannel strategy, we leave it up to the customer to decide when and how to buy.
Our live images are broadcasted to the screens of our customers from our studios in Ismaning near Munich.

From our studios in Ismaning near Munich, our live pictures go to our customers’ screens. We broadcast HSE, HSE Extra and HSE Trend live around the clock, 16 hours a day, 365 days a year. 46 million households watch us – and order our products. Most of the revenue is generated by our TV shows, which are scheduled down to the second. Without our teams in front of and behind the camera, this success would not be possible.
Constantly changing topics, new trends and different actors place high demands on us and make our work varied.
The Studio Operations teams are responsible for the props and set construction of our live broadcasts and ensure that our sales artists can present our products in the best possible way. We would like to introduce you to some of the areas of operation in detail.
In set construction, you will take care of the set and decoration construction for our live broadcasts in our three studios on location in Ismaning. You will also set up the lighting elements in the sets, be responsible for security in the studios and take care of repair work or small fabrications of set elements.
In the props department, your main tasks include preparing products for our live broadcasts. You are our specialist for the decoration and a sales-effective construction of our set elements and products. The supervision of the models during the live shows, as well as the coordination with our producers, guests and presenters round off your area of responsibility and make every live show an individual experience. By the way, our props people at HSE are called Coordinator Props & Samples and Mohammed explains in more detail in the video what makes the job with us so special.
The extended arm of Studio Operations is our sample warehouse, where we store our products, decorative items and set elements. As an employee in the sample warehouse, it is therefore your task, in consultation with the Studio Operations teams, to prepare the necessary products and decorative elements and deliver them to the studio. You will also be responsible for reordering and checking our products for the live shows and deciding which items will end up in our sample warehouse sale.
TV-Produktion & Broadcasting
The TV Production & Broadcasting division ensures the optimal “on air” and live experience with state-of-the-art broadcast technology in full HD, up-to-the-second timing and inspiring product presentation. It is divided into Execution (Camera, Sound, Mixer, Server Operator, Producer) and Talent Development and Styling (Talent Scouting, Talent Development, Service & Styling). We would like to introduce you to some of them in detail:
Camera Operator: The representative eye of our customers
As a Camera Operator you represent the eyes of our customers and are always right in the middle of the action. You are up-close and personal with stars and experts such as Judith Williams, Peter Schmidinger, or Jana Ina Zarrella. In our state-of-the-art studios you create imagery that inspires our customers. It will never get boring. There is always something going on. Our 145 creators – well-known lifestyle personalities – create a successful and entertaining program as hosts and experts. Each of them is unique and has different strong suits. Your job is to show the best of it all.
In addition, more than 17,000 products are waiting to be staged by you every year to make the sales figures go up. Be it a sweater, satin bedding, wireless Christmas candles, jewelry, lipstick, or washing machines.
HSE broadcasts almost around the clock. Of course, that means working in shifts. But a great team, constantly changing products and the faces of our “stars” make sure that you will not get bored.
HSE broadcasts almost around the clock. Of course, that means shift work for you. But a great team, always varied products and the faces of our “stars” make sure you don’t get bored.
Camera operators are what we call camera operators.
Picture Editor: A solid instinct for good images
As a Picture Editor you are responsible for which television picture is broadcasted to our customers. You guide our camera operators and technical crew safely through our sales shows and cut the different camera images together for the perfect live show. You are the link between our camera operators and the director and decide at lightning speed which settings are included in our live broadcasts. There will never be a dull moment. In addition to our 145 HSE creators, there are also 17,000 products that make sure of it. You have a solid instinct for good pictures and you know exactly which of the many buttons on the video mixer you have to press to put our studios and sales staff in the right light and to deliver captivating moments to our customers.
Server Operator / Font Generator: Add the finishing touches to the live broadcasts
A live broadcast without product information is like a beach holiday without the sun. As a Server Operator and Font Generator you give our live broadcasts the finishing touches. Thanks to you our customers know what product is being shown on the TV or what the order number is. Besides that, you ensure that our viewers know how many products are still available – before the cashmere sweater is sold out! That is exactly what your job is: After an announcement by the producer, you will prepare all the information about our products, and also inform our customers about which creator is currently on screen, and you garnish it all with clips and recordings on demand from one of the most modern live control rooms in Europe.
As a Media Designer or Radio / Television Technician you have already gained experience as a Graphic Operator. So you should not be concerned about working on live shows. With us everything is scheduled to the second, but for you it is easy to work with great focus and diligence.
Producer: The director of our sales shows
As a Producer, you prepare our TV shows according to sales-related requirements and control the camera and technology crew from one of the most modern live control rooms in Europe. With every shot you know how to rouse the emotions and enthusiasm for our products on our customers’ TV sets. There is no script, no presentation cards and no teleprompter. The dialogs and actions are based on spontaneity and talent for improvisation. And this is also required of you if you control the sales shows taking into account customer demand and inventory numbers. It is your effort that decides how many of the products are left at the end of the day and make our customers happy.
Even though we have an incredible number of live shows and products, we are always looking for new formats. We want your ideas here too! What are the requirements for this job? Definitely experience as a Producer, ideally, of course, in the area of teleshopping or direct response TV (DRTV).
Our shows are scheduled to the second, so you have to be a real planning and organizational talent. Of course, you should also keep a cool head in all the hectic of the studio and interact empathetically and at eye level with the crew. If you are also okay with working in shifts, then nothing is standing in the way of your dream job!
Talent Development: Talent Scout for our moderators and experts
The on-air talents are our HSE creators – well-known lifestyle personalities who present the HSE product range as hosts and experts. Always on the lookout for new faces for these roles, as a Talent Scout you look for influencers on social media, discover designers, or identify the talent of moderators of tomorrow. You take into account the current market trends and strategic corporate goals. And we do not just have a good nose for talent, we are the ones who give our talent the right tools at HSE. And that is how you turn the raw diamonds you found into real jewels through coaching and training. As a Talent Manager, you are also the first point of contact for our experts and moderators. Thanks to you they can work in a relaxed and well-prepared manner!
Service & Styling: The perfect look with type-appropriate hair & make-up
Our Service & Styling department gives our talents the final look. By talents we mean our creators. As a Stylist or Make-Up Artist you give them the last fine-tuning and the wardrobe that suits the respective target group, show, or brand. To do this, you work closely with the teams from the Purchasing, Show Planning, and Sample Warehouse departments. Ordering, ironing, and storing the fashion styles, for example for Jana Ina Zarrella, Marcel Ostertag or Brian Rennie, are also part of the job. In the Modelbooking department you organize the castings of our models and their agencies and discover our future studio beauties as a Talent Scout. Authenticity is paramount – after all, our models represent an attainable role model by which our customers are inspired to buy our fashion.
Always in contact with our stars, such as Jana Ina Zarrella, Judith Williams, Franzi Knuppe or Marcel Ostertag and many others, you are responsible for the trendy and type-appropriate hair and make-up and the perfect look that makes our live shows successful.
HSE is 100% live. Everything happens in real time. And that is why we are looking for people who are just like us. Up for something new and for change. Because we are also constantly reinventing ourselves.
HSE broadcasts live almost around the clock. Of course, that means working in shifts. But a great team, constantly changing products and the faces of our “stars” make sure that you will not get bored. And above all we offer you regular working hours, a safe job, and many other benefits. After all you are important to us!
We are also offering exciting jobs for architects, carpenters, and other “hands-on” jobs, also for career changers!
