Business Spectator is hiring - Reporter

Business Spectator is looking to hire an experienced reporter to break news on merger deals and IPOs.

Business Spectator is seeking a Sydney-based journalist to break news on mergers and acquisitions for the website’s Data Room page.

The successful candidate will have a background in business journalism. You can demonstrate a high level of initiative, possess sharp research and interviewing skills and are driven to get the scoop. Therefore you need to be able to work effectively and turn work around quickly.

You will produce copy that is clean, logical and accurate and have the ability to explain complex ideas and situations with clarity. You will already have, or be ready to build, excellent contacts with investment bankers, advisers, executives, corporate and government spokespeople to break exclusive business news. 

You will be expected to file to real-time, rolling deadlines on M&A activity, capital raisings, IPOs and corporate debt for both ASX-listed and privately owned companies.

The job requires the journalist to:

-- Write quickly, concisely and clearly;

-- Respond to tight deadlines and prioritise a multitude of tasks;

-- Demonstrate a high level of initiative in sourcing your own stories; and

-- Work autonomously, sometimes with limited supervision.

Minimum three to five years' experience in financial journalism required.

Send your CV and a brief cover letter outlining your qualifications, experience and what you think you can bring to the table, and attach three recent clips.

Applications should be sent to recruitment[at] by Friday, July 25.
