Bloomberg is hiring a global investment editor in London

Bloomberg News is looking for an editor in London to tell the story of how large amounts of capital are increasingly entering private markets, and the wealth being created by the rise of alternative assets. You’ll be responsible for shaping coverage of some of the newsroom’s most buzzed-about stories, working with financial and wealth reporters across the region to break news and produce standout businesses. We’re looking for someone with the dynamism and drive to combine multiple stories on dark topics and work across the spectrum of our reporting.

You must have a proven track record of working with junior and senior reporters, covering high-impact news and overseeing longer business pieces. Experience with finance is a plus.

The ability to leverage Bloomberg’s global newsroom by collaborating across teams and time zones is an essential aspect of the role.

We expect you to:

    • Distribute stories through the newsroom and work with stakeholders to ensure our reporting reaches our customers in a timely manner and in the most engaging format.
    • Work on pieces spanning billionaires, personal finance, real estate, investing and banking, and serve as mentors to our reporters.
    • Cross-collaborate with both the finance and wealth teams
  • At least three years of editing;
  • A proven ability to work with all types of journalists;
  • Comfortable working with deadlines plus the desire to take responsibility for shaping reporting and mobilizing the newsroom;
  • A sound news judgment and a talent for looking beyond the obvious story;
  • Willingness to work well within a team and with others in the newsroom;
  • Ideas for new and exciting ways to cover the beat.
