Job title: Reporter, Insurance Insider 
 
Located: London 
 
Hours: Full-time 
 
The award-winning Insurance Insider is looking for an ambitious reporter to join its editorial team in London. 

This role would be suitable for reporters with some experience under their belts looking for a workplace that will offer them progression opportunities and the ability to focus on exclusive news. We will also consider new graduates who can demonstrate an aptitude for financial industry coverage. 

We are looking for a journalist who wants to get to the story first.  
The ideal candidate would be someone able to develop a strong network of contacts and a technical understanding of the specialty insurance industry to provide high-value content to our subscribers.  
While prior experience of financial market reporting is preferred, an existing knowledge of insurance is not expected.   

Our mantra is to ensure our readers know first and understand better.  
Our audience are senior professionals in specialty insurance, meaning we cover the big-ticket insurance implications of everything from cyber attacks, political violence and high-seas piracy, to wildfires, hurricanes and tornadoes.  
Our highly collaborative team has deep connections with the industry on which we report. We keep close to the market to dig up news tips and break stories that move markets.   

About us 

Insurance Insider is part of privately-owned B2B media group Delinian.  
The award-winning unit employs more than 20 journalists and analysts across our UK and New York teams, serving a highly engaged subscriber base.      

The reporter will:
  

  • Contribute to the Insurance Insider news desk by quickly turning over accurate newswire copy  
  • Build, maintain and work a network of industry contacts to source exclusive news content and enhance sector understanding  
  • Progressively deepen understanding of the sector by reading, studying and talking to other staff in the company and industry contacts    
  • Play an initially small but growing role over time in the contribution of smart analysis pieces to add value for our readers  
  • Travel abroad for infrequent business trips and conferences

 
A successful candidate will have: 

  • The ability to write clean, concise and accurate copy quickly   
  • The ability to understand financial industry concepts  
  • Confidence in interacting with high-level industry contacts and the ability to present oneself well    
  • A determination to win and desire to be part of a cohesive team focused on delivering first-class journalism    

 
To apply, please email a CV and covering letter to Insurance Insider News Desk Editor Jim Robinson.
