The Luxemburger Wort – a Luxembourg-based daily newspaper that has been in print for nearly 170 years – is looking to recruit a news reporter with experience in business, financial markets, economics and/or European Union politics/regulation.

We are looking for passionate, ambitious newshounds who can develop local contacts to generate exclusive, breaking news, as well as longer analysis and investigative pieces, covering every facet of Luxembourg and its place in the wider context of Europe.

The successful candidate will have fresh ideas about how to take advantage of recent developments in digital publishing, delivering stories in new ways and reaching new readers.

We are looking for reporters with a bit of creative flair, who can get to the heart of an issue clearly and succinctly while telling a story in an engaging, stimulating way.

Candidates must be fluent in English, while proficiency in French and/or German is also highly desirable.

Experience with social media and digital-publishing trends – encompassing video, big data and analytics, podcasts and interactive graphics, etcetera – is also a major plus.

Applicants should email a CV and cover letter to Jim Robinson, editor of the Wort’s English desk, by completing the application form below.
