Posted Jul 10, 2008 - Requisition No. 22072
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 Latin America-based editor to join the regional economy and government team. Successful applicants will have an in-depth knowledge of the region, and will be fluent in English and Spanish. The ideal candidate will have at least three years of experience covering the beat at a major newspaper or news service. Fluency in Portuguese is an asset. Candidates should be accustomed to producing clear and comprehensive enterprise pieces, have a record of breaking important stories, and be able to edit spot news under real-time deadline pressure. The successful applicant is expected to have the proven ability to make snap decisions about stories that regularly appear on TOP, Bloomberg's front page. The editor will also be expected to serve as a mentor and coach to reporters and be comfortable working within a team environment. Familiarity with the Bloomberg Terminal is a plus. Please submit CVs in English.
