We are looking for someone who can be a hard-charging reporter who will break news, spot trends, and explain what’s happening and what it means!

What we’re looking for:

  • Good sourcing in UK/European companies and/or finance and markets
  • Strong interviewing and writing skills
  • A passion for business journalism
  • Unwavering dedication to accuracy, and dogged reporting skills
  • Strong organization, communication and interpersonal skills
  • Experience of developing a beat as well as general assignment work


Desirable Criteria

  • Good working knowledge of a second European language
  • Global newsroom experience


What’s on offer:

As Senior Writer, you will have the opportunity to work for a world-leading news organisation.

As you might expect, this comes with a competitive salary and a wide range of benefits and perks, including private medical and a generous pension contribution.

The role is also eligible for company bonus and on top of this, you’ll have access to regular in-house screenings, wellbeing and fitness programs and events.
