Posted Mar 15, 2024 - Requisition No. 123841

With close to 50 economists and 200 economics and government reporters worldwide, Bloomberg has an outstanding capacity to explain where the global economy and geo-politics are now, where they might be heading, and the ways in which the forces interact. 
Bloomberg Economics already offers a comprehensive macroeconomic research service for Terminal subscribers. That includes detailed forecasts, supported by thorough and original thematic research. 
As a next step, we are adding geoeconomics research, aiming for global coverage of key regions and issues from the Taiwan Strait to the Middle East and Latin America. The goal is to offer Bloomberg clients a deeper insight into the themes that drive economics, markets, and policy. 
We are seeking an experienced editor to support to our growing team. 


Working with a team of analysts, the successful candidate will be responsible for crafting and editing geoeconomic research aimed at helping our clients understand how geo-politics impacts the global economy and markets. The successful candidate will also coordinate with other editors on the team to ensure seamless editing support for the broader group of economists. 
Short-turnaround projects include editing quick analysis of breaking news on geo-political events impacting the economy, from the use of tariffs and sanctions to the outbreak of conflict. 
Longer-term projects involve editing projects that bring together expertise, data, and models to understand how geo-politics, national politics, and economics interact and what that means for markets. 
We’ll measure success by the quality and speed of editing and impact in terms delivery across all Bloomberg channels.
