HFM Global, Hedge Fund Reporter
Leading hedge fund media brand HFM Global is seeking a bright and ambitious journalist to cover one the most dynamic and interesting parts of the financial world.
The successful candidate will be contributing to HFM's flagship hedge fund title HFMWeek, based in our London offices in The City, as part of an 18-strong global team of award-winning journalists.
Within a short period of time they will be given their own beat to cover and will be required to regularly source off-diary stories, pitch insightful analysis ideas to editors and build up and cultivate a large contact book of helpful sources.
The role will also involve covering numerous events and industry conferences throughout the year, providing plenty of opportunities to travel and learn the industry.
This role would suit a self-starter who would rather be out meeting sources and pestering contacts on the phone rather than sitting at their desk waiting for press releases to roll in.
