The Wall Street Journal is seeking an experienced and enterprising reporter to cover financial crime and enforcement. You’ll need a deep understanding of finance to spot scams and unravel financial fraud. You’ll work closely with colleagues who cover enforcement agencies and with colleagues who cover financial services. You’ll have a broad remit to dig into banks, investors, traders, insurers and the crypto world.

  • write frequently and authoritatively on complex and interesting financial cases
  • probe firms, industries and individuals in the hunt for proprietary stories and projects

You have:

  • experience covering finance or a related subject
  • a background in or a facility for investigative digging
