German Banking Reporter
Posted Aug 18, 2023 - Requisition No. 118218
Bloomberg News is looking for a finance reporter in Frankfurt to cover Deutsche Bank and the German banking industry more broadly. The beat offers a unique chance to take on a high-profile role in a leading news organization. You'll be spearheading our coverage of one of continental Europe's biggest investment bank, making your stories essential reading for our readers.
We're looking for a reporter who has a keen understanding of Deutsche Bank and other financial firms in Germany's banking capital. We want a self-starter with a vision for the beat who will be expected to break news on everything from personnel changes to trading performance and job cuts. The ideal candidate can pivot seamlessly from on-the-day news to bigger pieces up to multi-week investigations and has the ability to juggle multiple stories and responsibilities at the same time.
You should have a proven track record of developing high-level sources, breaking high-impact news and writing longer-form enterprise pieces. Experience covering finance and German-language skills are a plus, and so is experience doing TV hits or video clips for social media to ensure your reporting gets multiplied across all our many formats.
The ability to leverage Bloomberg's global newsroom by cooperating across teams and time zones is a vital aspect of the role.
You'll need to have:
- Minimum of three years reporting and experience of finance and breaking news
- A proven ability to build sourcing
- Sound news judgement and a talent for looking beyond the obvious story
- A willingness to work well within a team and with others across the newsroom
- Ideas for new and exciting ways to cover Deutsche Bank and Germany's banking industry
