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 has long been a leading source of data and news and presents one of the most challenging environments in financial journalism. Bloomberg offers a unique opportunity to produce real-time stories that shape the markets and our world.
Bloomberg News seeks a reporter in its Washington DC office to join the Finance team, covering regulation of the world's biggest banks and securities firms.

The successful applicant will produce breaking news stories under real-time deadline pressure, ensuring they are clear and comprehensive.
The reporter will focus on breaking news such as regulatory and political developments affecting the financial services industry, and will also be expected to produce enterprise pieces on a regular basis. He or she will have the proven ability to make snap decisions about stories that regularly appear on TOP, Bloomberg's front page. The reporter will also be comfortable working within a team environment.
