Zurich Finance Reporter
Posted Nov 9, 2023 - Requisition No. 121517
Bloomberg News is looking for a reporter to cover Swiss banking. This beat has become one of the most-watched stories in global finance, following the historic takeover of Credit Suisse by UBS this year. The integration of the two banks, and how the combined company takes on the competition in the coming years, will be a critical story for our readership.
We are seeking a self-starting journalist who can put our readers inside the boardroom as this story unfolds, breaking exclusive news on strategy, personnel and trends that helps maintain Bloomberg's leadership coverage in the area. The ideal candidate will be able to combine this with analytical and forward-looking enterprise that explains the significance of the day-to-day newsflow.
Beyond the merger, the candidate should be hungry to build sources and write insightful stories on Switzerland's broader banking landscape, from the world of private wealth-management to an evolving scene for sustainable investment and ESG.
The successful applicant should be able to work seamlessly with colleagues around the world, piece together intelligence, develop sources at the highest level and use data to break down complex subjects. The candidate should be as comfortable socializing with CEOs as they are combing balance sheets for hidden insights. Experience in covering finance and a high-level of German-language skills would be a major plus.
You'll need to have:
- Minimum of five years reporting experience
- A proven ability to build boardroom-level sourcing
- Sound news judgement and a talent for looking beyond the obvious story
- The ability to work well within a team and with others across the newsroom
- Fresh ideas on how Bloomberg should cover UBS and Switzerland's banking industry
