AltAssets, the global private equity news service, is looking for a Financial Journalist to join its London team.

The role will require a talented, hard-working reporter to help build out AltAssets’ coverage of the global private equity and venture capital industries, as well as contribute to our daily news coverage of private equity, venture capital and alternative investments.

The opportunity would suit a keen junior reporter looking to make their mark within financial journalism.

Candidates should be prepared to quickly fit in with the cycles of a daily news site and be ready to source news and off-diary stories, interview senior industry figures and take the initiative to drive new content.

No specific expertise in the private equity space is required, but candidates must be able to demonstrate they have made an effort to understand the private equity industry and its major players - specifically the relationship between institutional LPs, GPs and the workings of closed-end private equity funds.

Successful applicants should display an eagerness and ability to hit the ground running and be keen to take responsibility for the role.

Please send CVs and a cover letter to Mike Didymus-True, Online Editor, by clicking the "apply online" button below.
