WSJ/Dow Jones seeks oil reporter for London

November 6, 2012

Posted by Chris Roush

Ben Winkley, assistant news editor for the EMEA Oil Markets team in London, sent out the following job posting:

Dow Jones Newswires is seeking a reporter to join the EMEA Oil Markets team, providing content across our real-time, online, print and multimedia platforms from the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires London bureau.

This is a beat with ample scope for broad, creative coverage of the meat and bones of the oil industry, in an arena where market theory meets the reality of filling up a car’s fuel tank or turning on the lights.

The core focus is oil markets, where the reporter will be expected to draw from existing sources and develop new ones to produce granular coverage of oil movements and pricing from the region’s main crude and refined products markets.

The reporter will also be expected to understand how these markets react to political, social and economic issues, and identify trends to develop ideas for longer-form features.

The ideal candidate will already have a broad understanding of the oil markets and how movements in the pricing of crude and refined products affect wider markets. We are seeking somebody to cover this beat aggressively, creatively and in depth, with scoops for all platforms, features for online and print, and regular blog posts and video contributions.

Anyone interested should contact EMEA Oil Markets Assistant News Editor Ben Winkley at ben.winkley@dowjones.com or +44 20 7842 9475.
