Reuters needs a top-flight journalist to anchor the financial team in Dubai and cover the investment and corporate sector in the Gulf, the MENA region and Turkey.
The successful candidate will probably have several years of experience covering investment banking, private equity or company news. The successful candidate will lead our coverage of an expected heavy flow of stories about mergers and acquisitions.
The competition to be first on these will be fierce. We need a highly competitive, driven performer who has a painstaking eye for detail and is unflappable. But candidates seeking this position should also have strong writing and editing skills. They should be as happy snapping and writing trunks as chasing ministers and bankers at conferences and on the phone.
The essential ingredient of our success in the Gulf has been collaboration and information sharing, not only among Gulf colleagues but across our global network of investment banking and M and A specialists. We need a journalist with a strong record of teamwork, a proven ability to plan, prioritize and coordinate, and someone blessed with the people skills to get the best out of colleagues often working under intense pressure.
– At least five years reporting experience
– Proven track record of cultivating sources and breaking news
– Strong copy editing and news editing skills
– Experience reporting corporate and investment banking news
