Trainee News Reporter - Washington, DC

Job description

The reporter will work alongside our teams in DC and London to cover regulatory agencies, court cases and law firms that shape antitrust and regulatory policy around the world. The reporter will be expected to rely on original reporting to produce daily stories for our widely-read news service. They will also be asked to craft engaging features and reports about issues that affect our savvy readership. While the job is document- and research-intensive, we spend much of our time in courtrooms, conferences and at the agencies, covering the events that shape the antitrust world in person.

 

Successful candidates will be competitive, hard workers, and fast writers with the ability to find sharp angles in stories; they will also have a team-oriented and collaborative outlook on newsrooms, with a willingness to take on a range of tasks in the newsroom, from high-profile cover stories to nuts-and-bolts fact gathering and research. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a truly international publishing house with the opportunity for travel both within the US and overseas, sometimes frequently.

 

To apply please send a covering letter explaining why you are suitable for the role and copy of your resume via our careers page through the link. You must also send us relevant writing samples to be considered for this role.
