With close to 50 economists and 200 economics and government reporters worldwide, Bloomberg has an outstanding capacity to explain where the global economy and geo-politics are now, where they might be heading, and the ways in which the forces interact. 
Bloomberg Economics offers a comprehensive macroeconomic research service for Terminal subscribers. That includes detailed forecasts, supported by thorough and original thematic research. 
We are seeking an experienced editor to support to our growing team of economists. The position can be based in Dubai or Mumbai. 

The role:

The successful candidate will be responsible for editing economic research that is aimed at helping our clients understand what’s driving growth, inflation, policy, financial markets, and capital flows. 
The primary role is to support and enhance our coverage of the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. The successful candidate will also coordinate with other editors to ensure seamless editing support for the broader team covering other major economies, geoeconomics, and emerging markets. 

Short-turnaround projects include editing quick analysis of breaking news on the economy, from data releases and policy moves to trade wars and debt crises. 
Longer-term projects involve editing ambitious reports that bring together expertise, data, and models to understand major themes shaping the economy and what that means for markets. 
We’ll measure success by the quality and speed of editing and impact in terms delivery across all Bloomberg channels. 

We'll trust you to:

  •  Ensure our economic analysis is tightly written, compelling, well-structured, and delivered quickly and accurately -- often under tight deadline. 
  •  Complement the technical expertise of our economists by exercising news judgement on when to write, and how to write and frame research. 
  •  Collaborate with teams across news and research to ensure our work reaches the widest possible audience. This includes editing material for different platforms and coordinating with regional news desks and editors. 
  •  Help craft reports for the front page – our biggest economics projects aim at a global audience. 

You'll need to have:

  •  10+ years of professional experience in financial journalism. 
  •  Demonstrated skill at crafting narratives for the financial professional audience as well as delivering tightly structured, quick turnaround pieces with a focus on accuracy, readability and added value. 
  •  Proficiency at editing technical material, sound understanding of basic economic and financial concepts and the ability to write about data in a clear, accessible way. 
  •  Strong communication and teamwork skills. 
  •  Energy and initiative to support our economists and help drive delivery of research in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
