Dealreporter, Italian Financial Journalist
Italian Financial Journalist
Dealreporter is looking for a financial journalist looking to progress in a career in investigative reporting.
The right candidate will be fluent in Italian and English. The role is based in a fast-paced news room that publishes real-time scoops on large cap companies. The right candidate will thrive on intellectual challenges and breaking stories.
The role is entirely focused on off-diary reporting. The right candidate will be as happy working on a story independently as working with a team of sector specialists to stack up a hypothesis.
Dealreporter’s team of multi-lingual journalists focus on high profile M&A deals and company news as well as providing detailed analysis on the financial health of European large-cap corporates.
Candidates should have strong writing and interpersonal skills with experience at another financial news service, newspaper or online publication. Applicants need to demonstrate a proven ability to generate leads, make new sources and pick up technical information easy.
The role is based in London with regular visits to Milan.
An already established contact book of corporate finance or M&A sources would be a huge advantage.
Dealreporter is a part of the Financial Times group. Dealreporter is a fast-paced news service for hedge funds, prop desks, fixed income investors and ECM desks.
