Posted Jan 23, 2023 - Requisition No. 113615

The energy of a newsroom. The pace of a trading floor. At Bloomberg, we connect decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. At the core of this network is our ability to deliver data, news and analytics through innovative technology – quickly and accurately. Around the clock, around the globe – we empower business leaders with breaking news, expert opinion and proprietary data distributed across platforms.
After more than a decade of easy-money central bank policies, credit markets are set to face their biggest challenge since perhaps the 2008 financial crisis, with an expected wave of corporate defaults and bankruptcies. Bloomberg News wants to own the story of what comes next, and we’re seeking a Reporter who can help us cover companies in bankruptcy.
You'd be part of a team that covers the most financially troubled companies in the Americas. The field includes some of the biggest household names, and a roster that's likely to grow. The job includes digging through bankruptcy dockets to tell the stories of company downfalls, and working sources to break news on the next wave of filings. 
We're passionate about breaking news and writing stories that set the agenda, and we want reporters who are just as comfortable taking the lead on a story as they are collaborating with teammates.

  •  Break news and cover regular court hearings on the biggest bankrupt companies in North America
  •  Develop sources to generate intelligent, high-impact, scoops
  •  Talk about your stories on Bloomberg TV, Bloomberg Radio and Bloomberg Quicktake
  •  Analyze industry data
  •  Dive deep into complex legal documents and cut through industry jargon to explain major deals
  •  Cover the beat with speed and accuracy
  •  Write insightful, thought-provoking features that add value
  •  Collaborate with colleagues across our more than 120 bureaus globally.
  •  A minimum of four years in journalism with a proven track record for breaking news on beat coverage of a company or industry
  •  Experience with real-time news
  •  Ability to write quickly and clearly under deadline pressure
  •  Ability to generate exclusive, breaking news as well as informative feature stories
  • Apply if you think we're a good match. We'll get in touch to let you know that the next steps are, but in the meantime feel free to have a look at:
