Bloomberg Industry Group is looking for an investigative reporter.

You will bring an investigative mindset to business and legal matters and produce stories with impact. You will write hard-hitting stories that affect change and break down complex issues clearly, accurately, and in a way that makes readers take notice.

What you will do: 

  • Spot regulations, policy decisions, legal developments, and daily stories that need more scrutiny and then know how to research and report to find the deeper story.
  • Investigative stories that sound the alarm, changing laws and affecting policy.
  • Meticulously report and fact-check your work.
  • Work well with your colleagues across the Bloomberg Industry Group newsroom, partnering on big stories and using their expertise to elevate your work and theirs.
  • Be able to identify which stories deserve attention – and which do not. Being able to manage your time well is the key to producing consistently good work.
  • Write clearly and concisely on a range of complex issues, always with an eye toward grabbing readers attention.

What you will need to have: 

  • An ability to write crisply and clearly about complex issues.
  • Excellent source development, time management and interviewing skills.
  • The proven ability to obtain documents and data through FOIA requests and the ability to work with data to find stories. You don’t need to be a data expert, but you should know your way around a spreadsheet.
  • At least seven years’ worth of experience as a journalist.
  • A Bachelor’s degree.
