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 real-time coverage through to in-depth enterprise. 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.
We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated reporter to join our Emerging Markets FX and Rates team, based in Mumbai. As India's financial markets gain traction on the global stage, this is an opportunity to be at the forefront of the action. The beat covers everything from the daily buzz of local market participants to the broader themes of India's inclusion in global bond indexes and the rupee's status as a global currency, as well as India's place in international investment portfolios. A dynamic and fast-paced role, it requires the ability to present news and analysis that makes valuable contributions for both the local and international audiences.
You will need to work and collaborate with our existing team of reporters and editors both locally and across the region. You will be expected to break news relevant to the currency and bond markets, pounce on price action and publish quick stories to reflect developments, keep in touch with and publish interviews of the smartest, biggest and most respected names in the industry and have a keen understanding of the financial market interplay with politics and economics.
We'll trust you to:

  • Generate and craft concise, on-the-spot stories, capturing the elements of both “what’s happening” and “what it means” - against the backdrop of local and global trends
  • Cultivate a broad network of investors, traders and other market participants as sources to help break news and build deeper stories that explain market activity or analyze trends
  • Identify and interpret broader themes in currencies and rates, drawing upon expertise from across the market and the Bloomberg newsroom to help generate impactful stories that set the agenda for investors and policymakers
    You'll need to have:
  • At least 5 years of recent experience in financial journalism
  • A proven track record for breaking news on beat coverage in finance, economics or markets or generating outstanding and exclusive market reporting and analysis
  • The ability to tap into a wide variety of contacts, ranging from traders and investors to the biggest money managers, government officials and policy makers
  • A knack for generating story ideas and finding the narrative in numbers, plus the dexterity to turn complex subjects into stories
  • A collaborative team spirit, the drive to innovate and a strong work ethic
  • Fluency in both written and spoken English, with the ability to quickly produce copy that is accurate, engaging and on point
  • Demonstrated continuous career growth within an organisation
