WSJ seeks aviation/aerospace reporter in London
The Wall Street Journal seeks an experienced, news-breaking reporter to cover global aerospace and aviation from London. The beat encompasses one of the world’s biggest and most important industries – the business of building anything that flies, including commercial and military planes, rockets, missiles and drones.
On this side of the Atlantic, the anchor of that coverage is Airbus, the French-German conglomerate that is now the world’s biggest maker of commercial jets. But covering Airbus also means reporting and writing about the plane-making duopoly it has long enjoyed with Boeing, as well as upstarts from China and Russia that have recently emerged to challenge that two-player market.
The job also offers a perch from which to write about the customer. Apart from Airbus, the beat includes some of the biggest and most innovative foreign carriers, including Dubai’s Emirates, British Airways and Ryanair, Europe’s answer to Southwest.
We are looking for someone who will dominate the beat with scoops and enterprise, work well with colleagues world-wide and embrace various forms of storytelling. Experience with industry coverage is a plus but isn’t required.
