Bloomberg News is one of the biggest financial and business news organizations in the world. We lead the way in breaking news and providing analysis on financial markets, from daily coverage through to in-depth features. We are known for our quality, accuracy and ability to deliver news investors can use. It's what keeps us inventing and re-inventing, all the time.

Bloomberg News is seeking a creative, enterprising journalist with experience in the commodities sector to help drive our coverage of the world's largest mining companies, global metals markets and the energy transition. You will be comfortable reporting on everything from large acquisitions to the world's copper shortage and the hunt for battery materials. While you will be based in Australia, you will be jumping into global stories, and will be expected to move with ease between urgent breaking news and long-form profiles, analysis and features -- including for Bloomberg Green.

We'll trust you to:

  • Break news from the metals and mining sector, while connecting the dots to craft insightful, enterprise stories
  • Build and use your contacts to help Bloomberg chronicle dramatic changes in the sector
  • Collaborate actively with colleagues across teams, bureaus and continents to break news and deliver a global perspective to our audience
  • Be innovative and think creatively about ways to make our content accessible to a diverse audience of business-savvy readers

You'll need to have:

  • At least 5 years of experience in journalism
  • Experience working in a real-time news environment
  • Experience covering financial markets, and preferably commodities, as a reporter
  • Demonstrated continuous career growth within an organisation
  • Strong communication skills
  • Proficiency in both spoken and written English

Life at Bloomberg is many things, but it’s never dull. We’re a truly global business with a truly diverse workforce. We pride ourselves on being open, inclusive and collaborative, and provide a work environment that inspires our employees to be their best.
