Central London

Do you have a passion and enthusiasm for all things digital money and want to break into the world of financial journalism?

The Role

After an incredible 12 months of growth this cutting edge company are looking for a Junior Reporter to help grow their coverage of fin-tech, digital banking and alternative finances.

The ideal candidate will have a basic understanding of news and feature writing ideally within finance experience or perhaps through education. Successful applicants will be able to show their proven experience and aptitude in journalism, or demonstrable enthusiasm to become a first-rate reporter.

This role is suited for someone with an interest in our changing relationship with money - think mobile banks like Monzo, free share trading apps like Freetrade and the world of alternative finance where Funding Circle and Moneybox are building new opportunities for investors.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Identifying and writing daily news stories
  • Working on weekly features, reviews and analysis
  • Publish an occasional opinion piece on topics you're passionate about
  • Start building a network of contacts among the fintech, digital banking and alternative finance communities in London and across Europe.

This particular company runs an entrepreneurial newsroom in the heart of London, so the dream candidate would turn up each day with their own ideas to bring to the table, whether for stories, features, podcasts, newsletters and events.

You must be keen to build your own network of contacts and sources in the sectors they cover and build a reputation for yourself, getting to know the companies and people who are leading the financial revolution, and telling their stories.

This company will work on your editorial training and support your career advancement, offer international travel opportunities and give you a chance to work at a leading news title in a niche but growing industry.
