Currency.com is looking for reporters and senior reporters to help expand our coverage of the fast-changing industry. Reporting to the London Desk Editor, you will be curious, motivated, organised and nimble, bringing a wide-ranging skillset and broad experience to a role that will be fast-paced but also rewarding for the right candidate.
