We lead the way in breaking news and providing analysis on financial markets, from intraday 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.

We are looking for a Seoul Bureau Editor to deliver clear copy on breaking news and enterprise stories from Korea across different topics.

  • Turn out quick, informative pieces and then follow up with bigger-picture takes
  • Build influential relationships across the newsroom to ensure our coverage captures the context of local developments and resonates globally and across all platforms
  • Work with reporters to develop ideas, while bringing your own perspective to add depth and value
  • Innovate with story formats while promoting diversity of thought and representation throughout our coverage

You'll need to have:

  • At least 5 years of experience in business journalism
  • Editing experience in a real-time newsroom environment, ideally across multiple subject areas.
  • Proficiency in both written and spoken English, understanding of the Korean language would be a plus
  • Attention to detail and a big-picture outlook
  • Demonstrated continuous career growth within an organization
