Markets Reporter/Editor - London

Careers at Bloomberg


Posted Feb 7, 2018 - Requisition No. 65071

The energy of a newsroom. The pace of a trading floor. The buzz of a recent tech breakthrough. We work hard, and we work fast - while keeping up the quality and accuracy we're known for. It's what keeps us inventing and reinventing, all the time. "Our culture is wide open, just like our spaces." We bring out the best in each other. And through our countless volunteer projects, we help bring out the best in the communities around us, too. You can do amazing work here. Work you couldn't do anywhere else. It's up to you to make it happen.

We're looking for an experienced Editor within our Cross-Asset team (CAT). You'll need at minimum to be a fast and experienced writer with demonstrable markets expertise. You'll be a team player with initiative, and the ability to generate ideas and see them to fruition. But most importantly, you'll be capable of operating effectively and quickly in a fast changing news environment. In exchange, the Cross-Asset team will give you a chance to range across the most important markets stories of the day.

We'll trust you to:

  • Work on one of the most dynamic teams in Bloomberg News to cover all aspects of the EMEA financial markets in real time
  • Help the team to fulfil our goals of delivering stories on the biggest themes across asset classes and enhancing Bloomberg's markets coverage across the board
  • Work with editors and reporters from around the newsroom (and the world) to deliver some of Bloomberg's most important coverage

You'll need to have:

  • Substantial knowledge of markets, and a keen interest in finance, economics and business
  • Confidence in editing, writing and reporting when needed
  • An ability to generate story ideas and connect the dots across asset classes
  • A knack for delivering sparkling prose to a tight deadline
  • A willingness to experiment with new formats and styles of news coverage
  • The flexibility to deliver spot stories alongside longer-term analyses and features
  • A proven affinity for CATs (Just kidding. You will, however, need a sense of humour)

Does this sound like you?

Apply if you think we’re a good match. We'll get in touch with you to let you know the next steps.
