Dealreporter, part of the Mergermarket Group, is looking for an ambitious and competitive Italian journalist to report on large cap Italian corporates.

The candidate should enjoy taking on intellectual challenges and have a track record in breaking stories. The role involves reporting on major Italian M&A deals as well ECM activity such as rights issues and IPOs.

Fast-paced and focused on off-diary reporting, the position requires a motivation and the ability to perform under pressure. The right candidate will be as happy working on a story independently as working with a team of sector specialists to cover a company or deal.

Dealreporter’s team of multi-lingual journalists focus on high profile M&A deals and corporate events as well as providing detailed analysis on European large-cap corporates.

Candidates should have strong writing and interpersonal skills with experience at another financial news service, newspaper or online publication. They should have the ability to build new sources, chase leads and pick up technical information easily.

Aside from being able to comfortably report in English, we are looking for candidates who ideally speak Italian fluently. Knowledge of Italian financial market and a contact book of Italian M&A sources would be a huge advantage.

The role could either be based in London or Milan.

Dealreporter is a fast-paced news service for hedge funds, prop desks, fixed income investors and ECM desks.

Key skills:

  • Keen interest in breaking financial news
  • Inquisitive personality
  • Excellent networking and source development ability
  • Strong English-language news writing skills
  • Excellent interviewing technique appropriate for dealmakers
  • Fluent Italian
  • Previous experience at a financial new service, newspaper or online publication
