The Company

Few organizations can keep up with the fast-paced, 24/7 nature of today's media coverage; even fewer can claim to have helped shape it.

Bloomberg offers a unique opportunity to produce real-time stories that shape the markets and our world.

They should also have the ability to develop contacts that lead to exclusive stories. Familiarity with the Bloomberg Terminal is a plus. Please submit CVs in English.
