Job Information

Dow Jones Reporter in BARCELONA, Spain

Job Description:

This reporting team monitors corporate and economic news from across Europe using a variety of sources. In addition to headlines and stories, a major part of the role is to quickly analyse news and the signals it provides to investors.

This takes the initial form of short, quick-fire analysis of market-moving corporate news, followed by slightly longer-form analysis items that include more detailed parsing of the event, and extends to more expansive and thematic items.

Ideally, you will have some knowledge of what to look for in corporate earnings statements and press releases, and some familiarity with economic data, financial markets and regulation, and a strong interest in these areas. Demonstrable knowledge of how data can be used to find insights and underlying trends and as a key newsroom tool will be a distinct advantage.

This is an exciting opportunity to write market-leading breaking news for Dow Jones, the global authority in business journalism and publisher of The Wall Street Journal.

You will:

-Monitor press-release feeds, websites and other sources of news and fire off headlines and short stories on key developments for publication in real time.

-Identify important, forward-looking detail from a fast-moving stream of information and turn it into informative, punchy headlines and short articles in English.

-On occasion, do some text translation, media monitoring and could be asked to crunch data for analysis that might lead to stories.

You have:

-Accuracy, speed, excellent news judgement and a close eye for detail.

-The ability to thrive in a high-volume news environment where teamwork and strong communication skills are hugely important.

-Excellent written English and near-native proficiency in one or more additional European language.

-The flexibility to jump quickly between subjects, languages and tasks while keeping a calm, clear head.

While you may start remotely, the job is based in our Barcelona newsroom.

To apply, please submit your resume, a cover letter and examples of your work.
