Bloomberg is looking for a reporter to join its team in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This is a chance to cover one of the world’s largest economies sitting at the heart of global geopolitics, international investment, commodities and the energy transition. It’s also a country going through an unprecedented transformation.

We’re looking for a self-starting reporter who can break news across sovereign wealth funds, international relations as well as the local economy and energy industry. We also want someone who can pull together these threads to write incisive features for Bloomberg’s global audience, spelling out what’s going on in Saudi Arabia and why it matters.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Break news and write enterprise stories that help our readers understand the complexities of Saudi Arabia, its economy, businesses, energy and relations with regional and international powers
  • Collaborate enthusiastically with colleagues across teams and regions to cover key events, chase scoops and write memorable stories
  • Be willing to work with a range of Bloomberg platforms, including the website, TV, Quicktake, Green, CityLab and Businessweek

You’ll need to have:

  • A bachelor’s degree
  • Excellent source development and interviewing skills
  • An ability to write quickly, concisely and accurately about complex topics under tight deadline pressure
  • Fluency in Arabic (a plus)
  • Flexibility with hours and assignments
