We are looking for a top-notch columnist to join our crack European team. This is an opportunity to set the agenda on corporate finance, banking, markets and government policy across the region.

Reuters Breakingviews has an unrivalled reputation for delivering clear, punchy and well-informed views for decision-makers around the world. As part of the global news organisation, we combine access to high-level contacts with the highest standards of independence and accuracy.

You will have a sophisticated understanding of companies and financial markets, razor-sharp analytical skills and the ability to slice through complex concepts to deliver lively and engaging arguments.

  • Research and write punchy and original views on business and finance which set the agenda for our global subscribers.
  • Develop and maintain contacts with senior executives, financiers, and policymakers.
  • Present your ideas and research in fresh and interesting ways, including through arresting graphics.
  • Work with our global team of columnists and editors to explore topical ideas and illuminate cross-border themes.

To be our EMEA columnist for Reuters Breakingviews, you will likely have:

  • A firm understanding of how companies and financial markets work, and a grasp of the basic concepts of corporate finance.
  • The ability to formulate strong, well-argued opinions under tight deadlines.
  • A base of high-level contacts among corporate executives, bankers, investors, and policymakers.
  • Experience of presenting your views to a sophisticated financial audience.
  • The highest standards of editorial integrity and professionalism.

Please note, the deadline for application is Sunday 21 August 2022.
