Posted by Chris Roush

Bloomberg News is seeking a creative, enterprising journalist with experience of the soft commodities sector to help drive our coverage of agriculture across Asia. You will be comfortable covering everything from fertilizer prices to wheat trading to the impact of climate change on harvests. While you will be focused on mainland China, you will be jumping into stories from a vast and varied continent, and will be expected to range between breaking news on trade protectionism and the market, to writing features on food security and our changing diets.

We’ll trust you to:

  •  Break news on the Chinese agriculture sector, while connecting the dots to craft insightful, enterprise stories
  •  Build and use your contacts to help Bloomberg chronicle the growth and impact of the economy in the region
  •  Collaborate with colleagues across teams, bureaus and continents to break news and deliver a global perspective to our audience
  •  Be innovative and think creatively about ways to make our content accessible to a diverse audience of business-savvy readers

You’ll need to have:

  •  At least 5 years of experience in business journalism
  •  Experience working in a real-time news environment
  •  Experience covering commodities, and preferably agriculture, as a reporter
  •  Demonstrated continuous career growth within an organisation
  •  Strong communication skills
  •  Proficiency in both spoken and written English
  •  Bachelor’s degree or degree-equivalent qualifications

We’d love to see:

  •  Fluent written and spoken Mandarin is preferred
