The Insurance Insider is a hard-hitting and fiercely independent news magazine based in London and New York that consistently breaks major news in its sector ahead of its competitors and the mainstream financial press, while providing intelligent analysis and insightful opinion.

The reporter role, based in the heart of London insurance market in the City of London, will require a journalist who has shown in their career to date that they can source and write accurate, fast and well-structured news copy.

In addition to news aggregation, the reporter will be given the time and guidance to develop a network of industry contacts so that they can contribute to the magazine’s culture of scoops.

The role will require sustained effort on the part of the reporter to gain a sophisticated understanding of a complex sector, with detailed knowledge necessary over and above that expected by most trade titles.

In addition to straight news reporting, over time the reporter will be expected to play a part in the organisation’s drive towards “smart journalism” via writing informed news analysis and opinion pieces.

We want to bring in a candidate with an unmistakeable talent for news journalism and a proven aptitude for cultivating contacts, writing clean copy and gaining mastery of complicated subject matter.

We are also looking for a hungry, driven, intellectually sharp journalist who will fit into the magazine’s culture of excellence, whilst working collaboratively with the existing close-knit team rather than in competition with them.

Sector-specific knowledge is not required, but experience of B2B publishing and of finance in particular would be an advantage.

Over time the role will involve a degree of international travel to industry conferences.

The magazine is part of listed company Euromoney Institutional Investor and this gives staff access to a broad suite of benefits including a significantly better than statutory pension, season ticket loan and share saver scheme. The Senior Reporter will also be eligible for a twice a year discretionary bonus.
