REFI Europe, a publication of Pageant Media, is seeking a reporter to cover European real estate private equity funds. While familiarity with the commercial real estate market or financial journalism experience is a plus, what’s more important is enthusiasm for a role that combines traditional reporting with a more analytical and visual approach to putting together stories. 

Based in our London office near St Paul’s, you’ll be part of a team that works closely with colleagues in New York and Cardiff to produce short- and long-form content. A typical day will include interviewing sources, writing one to two stories, helping to assemble a daily email and using our proprietary databases to identify and execute on analytical pieces. Visiting and covering real estate events and conferences, primarily in London, as well as building contacts and long-term relationships within the sector, are also important elements of this role.

Our publication is targeted toward senior executives at the most prominent real estate private equity funds and up-and-coming players in this exciting global industry.
