The Insurer is looking for a reporter to join us in building the leading publication in the world of (re)insurance.

This is a great opportunity for someone currently working as a reporter with an interest in finance either at a trade title or a national publication. 

We work at a high level, writing for a financially literate and relationship-driven market so we need a journalist who has a head for numbers and an easy way with people.

The Insurer caters for the specialty (re)insurance market, which put simply, is insurance coverage for unique or special risks. These can range from policies that provide cover against earthquakes and hurricanes, to space satellites and Olympic Games.

We are looking for an exclusives-getting news journalist that can spot a story in a company’s financials and unearth leads from off-record conversations with a book of contacts that will be growing day-by-day.

The role would be ideal for someone who has cut their teeth in journalism and is now looking for a new challenge with significant responsibility as we build the title into a global publication.

Based in the heart of the City of London, a stone's throw from the Lloyd’s insurance market, we’re looking for someone who can:

  • Source exclusive news on a daily basis
  • Cultivate a strong book of contacts from across the market
  • Build a network of sources through engaging with senior executives on the phone as well as in person every day
  • Quickly turn around punchy and accurate wire copy
  • Upload content and assist in managing the website  
  • Attend industry events and conferences

The opportunity:

With offices in London and New York – as well as an operation in California set to launch in the coming months – you’ll be joining an expanding publication with a global reach.

As a growing company, there’s the opportunity to earn responsibility and bigger roles far quicker than you would with a long-established firm.

If that sounds of interest, please send your CV along with a cover letter and any relevant writing samples demonstrating exclusive news coverage or the ability to get into the weeds of a company’s financials to rebecca@wbmediagroup.com.
