The Wall Street Journal seeks a London-based senior reporter who loves exploring the intricacies of financial markets and wants to share stories with the Journal’s two million-plus readers from one of the most exciting cities on earth. The job involves real-time explanation of markets and the people who drive them. It also involves producing journalistic deep-dives, investigations, profiles and features that explain the world of money and investing. The terrain is vast. We treat London as a listening post for global capital flows and expect our reporters to range across subjects and assets, be it stocks, bonds, currencies (crypto included), commodities or derivatives as well as in newfangled assets not yet invented.
The preferred candidate will have several years of experience covering markets and a demonstrated ability to demystify situations for readers quickly. This person should want to ferret out the winners and losers in the biggest global financial trades and should possess a curiosity in banking, finance, companies, investing and central banks.

The ability to use visual tools to change how we display and distribute the best of our financial journalism is key. The person should be eager, flexible, fast, good-natured and want to work on a team.
