Job Type
Full Time

The Wall Street Journal seeks a London-based Markets Reporter who loves exploring the intricacies of commodity markets and wants to share stories with the Journal's readers from one of the most exciting cities on earth.

The job involves real-time explanation of markets, especially energy and oil, and the people who drive them

 An equally important part of the job will be to produce journalistic deep dives, investigations, profiles and features that explain the world of commodities markets, the people who finance them and the end users who are affected by them. The terrain is vast. Fossil fuels, renewable energy such as wind and solar, and carbon trading are all fertile ground for reporting.

The trading of many commodities is a rough-and-tumble space; covering it requires gaining access to hard-to-penetrate private players and having a deep understanding of finance and geopolitics.

The preferred candidate will have several years of experience as a journalist and an abiding curiosity in financial markets and commodities. Direct experience covering commodities is a plus, but not necessarily a requirement. A general hunger to produce memorable journalism and a demonstrated ability to write well are musts.

Also key will be the ability to think visually in how tell our stories. The person should be eager, flexible, fast, good natured and want to work on a team.

Candidates should click 'Apply' to submit a resume and up to five clips.
