PEI, the leading global B2B financial publishing group focused exclusively on alternative asset classes, is seeking a talented candidate for a 3-month expenses paid internship programme.

Supporting editors across several different financial news websites, the candidate will work full-time in our London office as an editorial assistant on tasks that include writing daily news stories, liaising with PR and market contacts and interviewing sources. None of our interns make coffee and photocopies, but the candidate will be asked to support editorial staff as needed with research and fact checking as well as sourcing images, charts and data. They may also assist with social media posts, organising schedules for third-party contributions and other editorial tasks.

Applicants should have a bachelor's degree or equivalent and some prior reporting/journalism experience. The role requires impeccable command of the English language as well as an interest in financial markets and the economy. SEO, social media and multimedia skills are a plus, as is the ability to handle competing priorities under deadline pressure.

A successful editorial assistant should expect to leave PEI with a portfolio of published clips related to some of the most dynamic sectors in finance today; some may be offered a permanent staff writer role at the end of their internship should a suitable position be available.

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 be passionate about what they do. We can provide an exciting career opportunity where personal growth and advancement are aligned to the rapid development of an award-winning company. Learn more by visiting www.thisispei.com 

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV and three writing samples/published clips to Amanda Janis, amanda.j@peimedia.com
