The Wall Street Journal

Senior Editor
The Wall Street Journal requires a smart, savvy deputy editor to help lead WSJ City and its spin-off products and help bring storytelling into the concise, mobile age.

You will help to lead a team of reporters/producers in London and New York producing around 20 short stories daily, derived from WSJ content but with creative flair to ensure readers are fully informed in less than ten minutes a day. You’ll be able to pack facts and context into tightly-told stories with finesse and visual style.

You’ll be well-versed in finance, business and economics, and will have managed small teams of reporters before. A key requirement of the role is to be able to take over the day-to-day management of the concise storytelling that feeds the WSJ City app and related products, ensuring it flows accurately, succinctly and pithily through the European and US business days.

You must think swiftly, be a stickler for high standards and be ready to learn the WSJ’s methods and standards inside out. The role requires re-telling of some of the world’s biggest stories, and must be handled deftly and accurately. You will be offered legal and ethics training as standard.

You will be a journalist and editor with proven content and leadership skills, be able to demonstrate innovative thinking and clever ways to tell stories, be able to produce simple charts and have a keen eye for visuals. Previous experience working in digital media in the finance sector is a must.
