My client is a controversial financial markets and news commentary service, that reports on any event which impacts on the financial markets, and aims to cut through all the noise. They are seeking a highly finically literate writer who can respond quickly to events as they happen. These could be anything from financial data on employment or municipal deficits to analysis of bubbles in debt markets or political events in Washington. Ideally you will have a background in finance, knowledge of how markets and economics work and the ability to write in an engaging way, getting to the core of a salutation in a concise manner. My client is not looking for someone who will look to their contacts for opinion on events but has the necessary understanding to be able read and comment on situations. They produce a daily blog so it’s necessary to be able to quickly write short, insightful articles in response to daily events. The package will include a good basic salary, generous bonus and healthcare plan. You will be joining a small team in a financially sound business, they are looking for someone who understands the need to produce copy that gets people’s attention but because you will be writing to a highly, financially literate audience it must have substance. This is not an easy job but the rewards are very high and if you have a passion for finance, the ability to write, and an in-depth understanding of finance and economics this job could be perfect.
