Bloomberg delivers critical information in a world where information matters. We give influential decision-makers in business, finance and government a competitive edge by connecting them to a dynamic community of people, news and innovative ideas.

Do you have a track record in communications and a passion to promote the people and products that move markets? Are you a highly organized, process and detail-oriented team player who also thinks outside the box? Do you understand that a well-executed project requires collaboration across departments and time zones? If you're proactive and can work independently, then we should talk about this role!

  • Developing and reporting Media and Analyst relations impact metrics, collaborating with cross-functional teams and PR agencies
  • Promoting the adoption of communications best practices, innovations, and standards
  • Management of analyst firm and publication subscriptions and accounts, including purchasing, relationship management and ensuring return on investment

You'll need to have:

  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills
  • Strong problem-solving, strategic and creative thinking, and decision-making ability
  • Distinctive proficiency in MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint
  • Accustomed to "open door" office setting

We'd love to see:
