As our Beijing Bureau Chief you will be responsible for managing eight correspondents and ten news assistants and support staff in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. We’re looking for a motivational leader who will support the team to deliver the world’s best China coverage. In addition, the Beijing Bureau Chief will set the tone and agenda for the FT’s pivotal China coverage and produce a steady stream of scoops, features, news stories and analyses.
