Posted by Chris Roush

Reuters is looking for an experienced and enterprising Mining Correspondent to bolster its company news team.

Canada’s rich deposits of key minerals required to spur the electric vehicle revolution make it a focal point in the ongoing energy transition.  From breaking news on critical minerals deals, takeovers and mergers to how miners deal with climate change and ESG imperatives, this role gives the right candidate the ability to make a mark in this position.

If you are excited about this opportunity, know creative ways to tap sources and have distinctive ways to tell the Canadian mining story, we would love to hear from you, even if you haven’t covered the beat in the traditional sense.

About the Role

In this opportunity as Mining Correspondent, you will:

  • Build a network of top-notch sources in Canada’s mining sector, and among bankers, lawyers, and lobbyists to break news on impending M&A, capital raisings, to other corporate actions.
  • Spot information hidden in company filings and work with other mining correspondents across the world on enterprise stories
  • Leverage Reuters global reach as the miners try to boost profits and reward shareholders, while grappling with slowing demand and soaring costs due to inflation

About You

You’re a fit for the role of Mining Correspondent, if your background includes:

  • At least five years of journalistic experience working in a fast-paced environment
  • Proven ability to build network of high-level sources and break impactful stories
  • Good team player and be flexible to work on quick turnaround stories and work on enterprise stories
  • Write with accuracy, clearly and quickly in accordance with our principles and operating standards
