Full Time

Acuris, a global publisher of financial news, data and analysis, is seeking a full-time reporter to cover mergers and acquisitions across the industrials sector for its Dealreporter and Mergermarket products.

The ideal candidate would be an ambitious and competitive M&A journalist looking to write scoops on significant deals involving listed targets across the continent.

The candidate should enjoy taking on intellectual challenges and have a track record in investigative reporting. The role involves breaking news and analysis throughout the life cycle of a deal. Our coverage spans from highlighting a potential transaction through to scooping the deal details and analysing reviews by competition authorities.

Fast-paced and focused on off-diary reporting, the position requires analytical skill, source-building know-how and a nose for a good lead. The right candidate will be as happy working on a story independently as with a team of sector specialists to cover a company or deal.

Candidates should have strong English writing and interpersonal skills, detailed-oriented and a keen interest in breaking financial news. They should also have the ability to build new sources, chase leads and pick up technical information swiftly and accurately.

Previous experience covering the Industrials sectors would be a plus.

European languages or a contact book of European advisory sources would be significant advantages.

The role is based in London.

Key skills:

  • Some experience in a news reporter role, ideally with a financial or legal focus
  • Keen interest in breaking financial news
  • Inquisitive personality
  • Outstanding networking and source development
  • Strong English-Language news writing skills
  • Knowledge of a second European language would be a plus

Acuris is fully committed to a policy of non-discrimination and to promoting equality of opportunity in employment on grounds of merit, experience, skills and aptitude in order to maximise the full potential of both existing and prospective employees.
