MLex seeks a senior correspondent for financial services in Brussels

January 18, 2022

Posted by Chris Roush

You will write about a broad range of EU regulations concerning the financial services industry including prudential regulation of banks and insurers, green finance, money laundering, investor protection, digital currencies and other fintech applications.

Writing for an influential audience of executives, lawyers, consultants and policymakers, you will be expected to keep on top of major developments, deliver exclusive stories, and produce sophisticated commentary and analysis.

You will work closely with a senior FS reporter based in London, jointly deciding on coverage priorities and handling cross-border stories such as post-Brexit equivalence. There will also be occasions to collaborate with colleagues in Asia and the Americas, and with those covering other beats such as climate, financial crime and antitrust.

Nevertheless, you need to demonstrate the ability to take overall responsibility for your beat and ensure that everything is covered with minimal oversight from editors. You must also be able to write clearly, producing stories that are both detailed and accessible to non-experts.

You must have the right to work full-time in Belgium, though we might consider sponsoring a visa for an exceptional candidate. You will be expected to work from our office in the EU quarter at least two days a week, with the option to work from home on the other days, under our post-Covid hybrid working policy.

What we are looking for:

  • Deep interest in and knowledge of EU Financial Services regulation
  • Network of sources and track record of producing exclusive stories
  • News judgment and analytical skills
  • Accurate writing and reporting standards
  • Ability to work both independently and collaboratively
  • Excellent written and spoken English
