Debtwire, an Acuris company, is looking for a reporter to cover the real estate markets of southern Europe. Candidates need to be fluent in Spanish, French and English.

Working on a fast-paced news desk, candidates will be expected to chase leads and publish news ahead of all other media outlets on upcoming real estate investment deals and how they are financed.

This requires an analytical mind, a high attention to detail and a proactive approach to relationship development and source building in property consultancies, private equity firms, banks and real estate companies.

The London-based role is focused on off-diary reporting and the candidate is expected to use his/her own initiative to uncover leads from market sources and produce scoops and insightful news on a regular basis.

Debtwire provides actionable intelligence for its subscribers, covering real estate deals in Europe and the US.

The job will involve regular travel to meet sources and attend conferences.
