Data Journalist – Insider Publishing Group  

Insider Publishing Group is looking for a Data Journalist to join its editorial team in London in a newly created role.   

The team is focused on providing unrivalled market intelligence and real-time insight to senior professionals in the insurance sector based on broad networks of sources and deep knowledge of the industry.    

Our mantra is to ensure our readers know first, and understand better.  

The data journalist will play a key role in making our news product richer through data visualisation, and will be able to leverage available data to provide new insights to readers across our titles Insurance InsiderTrading Risk and Inside P&C.  

We are ideally looking for a candidate with some existing data journalism experience who is looking to further their craft in a hard-news setting. A successful candidate will need to be comfortable operating at speed and possess a keen eye for detail in an environment where there is a high tariff around mistakes. 

We will also consider graduates who are ambitious, numerically literate and ready to learn. 

The Data Journalist will: 

  • Find, clean and analyse published data to produce stories and create compelling visualisations predominantly for Insurance Insider and Trading Risk 
  • Assist reporters and editors in data and visualisation work to support their stories and analysis 
  • Identify new sources of data and pitch new ideas for data-led work which could support our coverage 
  • Help manage internal data to help the team track performance and work towards achieving key goals 

A successful candidate will have: 

  • A passion for storytelling through data visualisation, and the ability to visualise complex ideas in a clear, accurate, creative, and intelligent manner 
  • An excellent understanding of Excel  
  • Proficient writing skills to support and present data analysis, alongside scrupulous attention to detail  
  • A determination to win and a desire to be part of a cohesive team focused on delivering first-class journalism  

Experience in crunching data from financial reports is preferred but not essential, and direct experience of writing about insurance is not expected. 

Insider Publishing Group is a unit of NextGen, part of FTSE-250 journalism, events, research and data business Euromoney Institutional Investor. 

The award-winning unit employs 18 journalists and analysts across its London and New York teams, and has continued to deliver top- and bottom-line growth this financial year despite the impact of the pandemic.
