WSJ seeks a risk and compliance reporter
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter to cover risk, compliance and the regulation of companies and financial institutions.
The position calls for a multi-talented journalist who possesses an understanding of – or eagerness to delve into – risk and compliance issues related to money-laundering, bribery, illicit finance, sanctions, whistleblowers, corruption and fraud.
The reporter will be part of our Risk & Compliance Journal team and will play a critical role in the publication of the team’s Morning Risk Report e-newsletter, a must-read for compliance officers, regulators and lawyers who need sophisticated news and analysis on compliance issues.
The ideal candidate will be adept at balancing short-term coverage plans and breaking news with features and longer-term assignments. The reporter must be able to produce articles that are sophisticated enough to appeal to risk and compliance professionals, yet clear enough to be understood by general readers.
The ideal candidate is comfortable reporting on the nexus of legal, corporate and geopolitical issues in various forms of digital storytelling. The reporter should also be comfortable with occasionally moderating panel discussions for live journalism events.
Experience covering risk and compliance is strongly preferred, as is experience covering agencies such as the Treasury Department, Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission, which regulate industry or enforce regulations.
