My client is looking for a journalist who enjoys breaking news, has intellectual curiosity and an interest in large industrial companies and how they operate.

This is a varied role, you could find yourself covering rare metals or geopolitical risk in Africa, along with a lot of granular stories.

Energy and passion are the two things my client is looking for, this is more important than 10 years of experience, but it would be enormously beneficial to have a background in financial and business journalism related to industry, energy or metals.

You will be joining a global publication and working with a team of experienced reporters, so great communication, excellent writing and some editorial skills are all essential for this role.

You will need to have a strong interest and experience in investigative journalism. You will be working with a team of talented and experienced journalists, financial analysts and lawyers to shape content and report on high-yield issuers and European leveraged loan borrowers.

My client is a highly successful and well established publisher of print and online news and intelligence on the global utilities industry, they have a large global team and are looking for an experienced editorial professional to manage the flow of news and analysis, help train reporters and develop their online offering so it’s more representative of their subscriber needs and gives the potential to create new channels.

It is essential that you have excellent people management skills and the ability train junior staff to produce high quality news and analysis. Because this publication is subscription based there is less of a focus on SEO and more on quality and accuracy of the content, as managing editor it will be your job to get the editorial team working to their optimum, ensuring there is co-operation between staff on sister publications and the team as a whole is more focused on building the online presence of the publication. My client is also looking to the managing editor to help co-ordinate the ongoing development of the publication, along with marketing and other departments, to find ways of exploiting the resources available to grow new channels and build subscriptions. This is in many ways a strategic development role so it’s important that you have a solid understanding of how to make publications work in the digital age for a subscriber audience.

If you are not based in Oxford (but based in the UK) and happy to relocate, my client is willing to help with the cost of moving.


Reporter – Bond Markets – London

Writing a mixture of deal snaps, market news and trend pieces you will be joining a friendly team working on a market leading product. My client is deeply embedded in this market, running a series of global conferences, annual awards and even charity poker nights. So, if you are the kind of journalist who would prefer to hunt down an original story, rather than re-write press releases, then this job could be ideal. Any day’s coverage will reflect what’s going on in the credit, equities, rates, currencies, commodities and inflation markets across the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. The markets you will be covering are at the cutting edge of investors’ efforts to profit from or protect themselves from events and trends – surging oil prices or the sovereign debt crisis for example.
