Bloomberg News - European Agriculture Reporter
Posted Jun 25, 2021 - Requisition No. 91747
We're seeking a resourceful, self-starting reporter to write about agricultural commodities. Sugar, coffee and cocoa will form the basis of your beat -- a rich vein for market-moving scoops.
You'll coordinate with reporters across the globe -- covering cocoa growers in Ghana to sugar refining in Dubai -- and will be expected to tell the story to both specialist readers and to a wider global audience. There's plenty of scope for creative storytelling and multimedia work -- as well as fast paced market analysis.
We'll trust you to:
- Build a deep network of sources in European and global agriculture markets, focusing on soft commodities
- Become an expert on your beat, able to spot the key news developments and trends early on, break news that's meaningful and shape longer-form stories that are smart, insightful and engaging
- Work well in a team environment, collaborating across both the newsroom and the globe
You'll need to have:
- A track record of cultivating sources and breaking news covering a beat
- Willingness to learn the intricacies of commodities markets
- An ability to generate story ideas independently
- A keen curiosity about the global food system and how it is evolving
