We'll trust you to:

  • Break news on the financial services industry and write enterprise stories under deadline pressure
  • Lean on existing sources and develop new ones to generate intelligent, impactful news
  • Work with Bloomberg magazines, Markets and BusinessWeek, and talk about the bigger stories on Bloomberg TV and Bloomberg Radio
  • Cover breaking news with speed and accuracy
  • Write insightful, thought-provoking stories
  • Collaborate with colleagues across teams and countries

You’ll need to have:

  • Experience of working to short deadlines in a busy environment is essential

  • Financial or business journalism experience
  • Experience of working in a real-time news environment
  • The ability to write quickly and concisely under deadline pressure
