Reporter, Private Equity International - NY
Are you a news-hungry journalist? Have a passion for finance, a talent for cultivating high-level sources and the ability to ‘connect the dots’? And fancy a beat that necessitates finding and breaking your own news, rather than turning around press releases?
If so, there’s an exciting full-time reporter position available with PEI Media, the fast-growing financial publishing and information group focused exclusively on alternative asset classes.
Based in New York City, this is a rare opportunity for an ambitious individual seeking to advance their career in one of the most dynamic segments of global finance by joining a growing, independent media company.
The position is tied to Private Equity International, one of the world’s leading news and information services catering to the private equity industry.
The Reporter will join a team of nine private equity-focused journalists around the world to break stories on funds and investors and provide valued analysis and insight to an audience of institutional investors, private equity fund managers and their advisers.
The successful candidate will contribute both exclusive news stories, analysis and data-led content both in print and online.
PEI Media (thisispei.com) provides a range of highly respected publications and market leading events to its financial sector audience. The leading information provider in private capital markets, PEI Media has offices in London, New York and Hong Kong.
The successful candidate should have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent and at least a year of journalism or related/relevant experience. A demonstrable interest in business, finance and investment is essential, as is the ability to work both independently and as part of a global team.
Resilience under pressure – remaining focused in the face of competing priorities to ensure key deadlines are met – is key. The individual should also be a gifted networker, who is willing and able to travel and attend industry-related events; engaging constantly with the markets we cover is a core requirement. Fluency in foreign languages and multimedia reporting skills are a plus.
People who thrive at PEI are smart, ambitious and committed. The successful applicant will understand the value of teamwork yet desire to make a personal impact and will be passionate and energetic about what they do. We can provide an exciting career opportunity where personal growth and advancement is aligned to the rapid development of an award-winning company. Learn more by visiting thisispei.com.
