Bloomberg News is seeking a dynamic and enthusiastic reporter to cover metals in London, home to the world’s biggest markets for both bullion and base metals. 

You will join a team of reporters across EMEA and the Americas responsible for covering the biggest stories and companies in metals and mining -- from billion-dollar mergers to drama-filled market squeezes; connecting the dots on what’s driving prices from gold and silver to copper and zinc, while digging into the increasingly critical role that metals are playing in the global energy transition.

We’re looking for someone with a nose for scoops, a talent for developing a deep and diverse network of sources, and an interest in the inner workings of global commodity markets.

We'll trust you to:

  •  Break news on the biggest names and developments in metal markets
  •  Write smart and engaging daily market reports, using your expertise and sourcing network to identify the most important moves and what – or who – is driving them
  •  Be a team player and collaborate closely with colleagues across the newsroom 
  •  Deliver sophisticated analysis, ambitious features and multi-format stories on the key developments in metals and mining and what they mean for companies, industries and economies around the world

You'll need to have:

  •  A minimum of 3 years of recent experience in financial journalism
  •  A track record of building sources and breaking news
  •  A keen interest in commodity markets
  •  The ability to write quickly and concisely under deadlines
