Posted by Chris Roush

Reuters Breakingviews is looking for a talented, original thinker with excellent organizational skills to join our team, editing and writing columns on U.S. companies, economics and financial markets.

We’re looking for an experienced editor with good ideas, a collegial approach, a high level of numeracy and a desire to be the best at what they do. A proven ability to coach writers to produce impactful columns is highly desirable; a love of tight deadlines is essential.

Our editors also do exactly what they ask of columnists: write sharp, punchy opinion pieces that appeal to a high-level global audience. We now have more than 30 columnists worldwide, each of whom enjoys an enviable network of contacts and an eye for an agenda-setting view. Editors also play a critical role in helping us to uphold the Thomson Reuters Trust Principles by which we operate, and the Breakingviews style guide that keeps our writing clear, accessible, consistent and accurate.

The essentials:

  • Top-notch organizational and communication skills
  • An ability to bring out and develop columnists’ best ideas
  • Clarity and conciseness, both in writing and editing
  • Knowledge of corporate finance and financial reporting
  • Experience of editing financial writing

Bonus skills:

  • Experience writing and editing financial commentary
  • High-level contacts and a knack for making new ones
  • A proven desire to build a profile among relevant audiences
  • Video, TV, podcast and event-moderating experience

This job will be based in New York.
