A reporter’s role at Argus offers a unique opportunity to develop a number of valuable skills:

  • News gathering and writing in a real-time environment for a specialist and demanding readership that pays close attention to what you produce and uses it as significant input into high value commercial decisions

  • Feature writing and thought leadership read at the highest level of industry and policy making

  • Analysis of market-relevant fundamentals data and the ability to draw out strong narratives concerning market trends and potential market changes

  • Price identification and compelling market commentary through building on existing and developing new networks of trading and broking contacts

Development opportunities

  • Argus has a proven track record of providing high quality training, both on a daily basis within the line management structure of its reporting teams and through using internal and external resources.

  • Reporters develop quickly the ability to act on their own initiative and to produce new ideas, within a sophisticated support network. Argus welcomes candidates that can think independently.

  • Reporters are actively encouraged to attend conferences and industry events, where they can hone networking skills and cultivate sources; and to engage in public speaking, webinars and social media as they develop deep understanding of their particular markets. There are opportunities for international travel.
