Healthcare Europa covers the vast, and growing, private healthcare sector in Europe and beyond. We are seeking two additional staff to join our team.
This fascinating sector covers everything from private hospitals to nursing homes and from diagnostics to the outsourcing of a wide range of services. We look, in-depth, at how private players are working with the state in many countries, including privatisation. We also focus on underlying business models and how they are changing.
Our subscription clients are top blue chips – private equity, investment banks, management consultancies, suppliers, large hospital groups and other operators.
You will be expected to write in-depth features and to generate original news content. You will also cover financial results and M&A deals. The job includes some foreign travel.
The ideal candidates will have at least one year’s experience in company reporting in an English-speaking environment, proven interviewing skills and the ability to generate original news stories and to run a contact network.
- 1-2 years news experience in business journalism.
- Academic intelligence. We are looking for 2.1 or better. Journalism qualifications help, but are not essential.
- Numeracy skills (A-level Maths would be a distinct advantage).
- Ability to pick up the phone and engage and communicate with anyone.
- Foreign languages, particularly Spanish, Italian or Arabic, are a plus.
Opportunities for rapid advancement to editor roles with management responsibilities, as well as involvement in our conferences. Equity opportunity after six months for those who prove themselves. Detailed training on the sector plus your own annual training budget of £350.
