Dow Jones, News Writer (Barcelona)
Dow Jones has a team of smart and versatile News Writers who fuel its real-time news service for financial professionals.
Based in Barcelona, these writers monitor press-release feeds, websites and other sources of news and fire off headlines and short stories on key developments for publication in real time.
Writers are proficient at identifying important, forward-looking detail from a fast-moving stream of information and turning it into informative, punchy headlines and short articles in English.
They will also be expected to produce Market Talk items - short, quick-fire analysis in real-time of market-moving corporate news.
Accuracy, speed, excellent news judgement and a close eye for detail are essential. Successful candidates must be able to thrive in a fast-paced, high-volume news environment where teamwork and strong communication skills will be hugely important.
Excellent written English and near-native proficiency in one or more additional European languages are also essential.
Ideally, candidates will have some knowledge of what to look for in corporate earnings statements and press releases, and some familiarity with economic data, financial markets and regulation.
Writers also might do some text translation, media monitoring and could sometimes be asked to crunch data for analysis that might lead to stories.
Writers need to have the flexibility to jump quickly between subjects, languages and tasks while keeping a calm, clear head. They need to be adept and flexible with technology.
