About the role:

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

We work at a high level and speed, 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.

We are looking for an exclusives-hungry news journalist with a proven track record for spotting a story in a company's financials and unearthing 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 a fast-paced newsroom and is now looking for a new challenge with significant responsibility as we continue to build the title.

We are 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 
  • Quickly turn around punchy and accurate wire copy
  • Foster good working relationships and work as a team
  • Upload content and assist in managing the website  
  • Attend industry events and conferences

What to expect:

  • All of our team members are currently working from home, however we do expect to return to the office in the City of London on occasions in the future
  • The work is often challenging and fast-paced as you will need to meet tight deadlines and juggle various projects simultaneously 
  • You may need to travel abroad during annual industry events or conferences

Working hours:

Permanent, full time.

Salary:

Competitive (depending on experience).

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.
