Job Information

Dow Jones Reporter, Financial Regulation NY in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

Reporter, Financial Regulation, New York

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an enterprising and well-sourced reporter to cover financial regulation.

The U.S. financial system is a sprawling network of banks, exchanges, asset managers and payment networks. It is governed by a mishmash of federal, state and local regulators. The importance of that matrix was on display last year when three U.S. banks failed in rapid succession, catching their regulators off guard and sparking fears of a 2008-style meltdown.

We’re looking for a reporter who can help our readers understand the complicated interplay between regulator and regulated. We need someone who can break news about the things regulators are worried about and how financial companies are responding. There’s much ground to cover, and the stakes are high. Last year’s turmoil exposed cracks in the banking business model, especially among the thousands of community banks Americans rely on.

The ideal candidate is deeply familiar with the inner workings of financial markets and the political dynamics that influence the regulatory environment. We also need a sharp writer who’s capable of translating complex information clearly and completely. A desire to collaborate with colleagues in different coverage areas is a must.

The position is based in New York and reports to the Wall Street Bureau Chief.

You will:

  • Break news on your beat.

  • Conceptualize and deliver deeply reported enterprise stories.

  • Work with colleagues around the country and the world in a 24-hour-a-day global newsroom.

You have:

  • At least five years of experience covering a highly competitive beat, preferably including financial regulation.

  • Deadline writing skills.

  • Proven ability to develop sources and write with authority on what is happening and what it means.

  • A track record of tackling ambitious projects and finding original approaches to coverage.

To apply, please submit a resume, a cover letter outlining how you would approach this beat and examples of your work.

The Journal’s reporters, editors, developers, and audio and visual journalists create important and impactful stories, firmly rooted in fact and adhering to the highest ethical standards. We report without fear or bias, and we maintain a proper sense of perspective, detachment and objectivity in our reporting.
