Seeking ambitious senior reporter

Infrastructure Investor, the leading online and print publication for the global infrastructure market, has a rare opening for an enterprising senior reporter in its London office.

Infrastructure Investor covers private capital investment from institutional investors like pension funds, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds into transportation, utilities, energy and social infrastructure – a multibillion dollar market.

You will be joining a global team spread across London, Hong Kong and New York at a time of exceptional growth in this market, driven by widespread government support for infrastructure as an engine of economic growth and a low interest rate environment that is pushing a record number of institutions into the asset class.

REQUIREMENTS

The successful candidate should have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent and at least four years of journalism or related/relevant experience. We are looking for a knowledgeable business reporter with a good understanding and experience of covering private markets. The ideal candidate, however, will have experience covering the global infrastructure market and a strong contact book.

Resilience under pressure – remaining focused in the face of competing priorities to ensure key deadlines are met – is key, as is the ability to work both independently and as part of a global team. As the most senior journalist of Infrastructure Investor in London, the candidate will also be expected to set an example and help lead more junior members of the team.

The individual should also be a gifted networker, willing and able to travel, attend industry-related events and moderate panels at internal and external events; engaging constantly with the markets we cover is a core requirement. Fluency in foreign languages and multimedia reporting skills are a plus.

BENEFITS

People who thrive at PEI are smart, ambitious and committed. The successful applicants will understand the value of teamwork yet desire to make a personal impact and will be passionate and energetic about what they do.

Our journalists connect deeply with the markets they cover, delivering expert news, analysis and information not available elsewhere. It’s not enough for our journalists to simply report what happens; they must be able to analyse how and why news matters for our discerning, high-level audience that comprises the world’s most influential institutional investors, leading fund managers and advisors across alternative asset classes including infrastructure, private equity, real estate and private debt.

We are looking for ambitious individuals seeking to advance their career in one of the most dynamic segments of global finance by joining a growing, global media company. Learn more by visiting thisispei.com.
