Posted Sep 7, 2021 - Requisition No. 94882

Curious about the unprecedented change under way in the auto sector and the businesses behind it? Bloomberg News is seeking a reporter to join its fast-moving Asia Transport team, to cover the evolution of today's cars and the supply chains that power them. Nowhere is that shift more evident and being seized upon than in China, home to the world's largest car market and a hotbed for new-energy vehicle, or NEV, development. The cars of the future will be more intelligent, like giant computers on wheels, powered by batteries and guided by sensors, software systems and camera technology. The successful candidate will cover and break news on the companies that are at the ground floor of this new automotive ecosystem, with a focus on China but an eye to the rest of Asia as well, working with our auto coverage team. Based in Hong Kong for now, the role will also have a focus on supply chain choke points, with recent virus flareups in parts of Southeast Asia disrupting the export of auto chips to parts.

This is a new beat and a fluid story, requiring an experienced reporter who can show ingenuity, resourcefulness and a zeal for breaking news. The ability to bring this complex world and the players within to life is a must.

In this role, we'll trust you to:

  • Build contacts along the NEV supply chain, particularly in China
  • Break news that has impact
  • Develop and execute compelling ideas for enterprise stories
  • Build influential relationships across the newsroom
  • Work creatively to tell stories, through print, multimedia and other platforms

You'll need to have:

  • At least five years work experience in journalism or the NEV/automotive field
  • Experience working in a real-time news environment
  • Exceptional writing skills and sharp news judgment
  • Fluency in English, with Mandarin a distinct advantage
  • A hunger for breaking news and tackling complex topics for our readers
  • The ability to organize and prioritize coverage, and be a team player
  • Thorough working knowledge of the transport industry in Asia
