Sports Correspondent
Reuters is seeking a Correspondent for its Bangalore Sports Desk. The sports team in Bangalore is an integral part of the global Reuters sports file and delivers breaking news across geographies with the accuracy, speed, context and freedom from bias our clients expect. The ideal candidate should be an excellent storyteller, writer and reporter with sound news judgment and the ability to multi-task. Interested candidates should have a minimum of one year’s experience as a sports reporter. A familiarity with North American sports and prior editing experience are advantages, though not prerequisites. You should be someone who is comfortable working in a diverse team and flitting between sporting disciplines. You could be asked to write stories on anything from soccer and golf to basketball and the latest CAS judgements on a given day. The team is often the first point of contact for breaking sports news around the world, so a calm head, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to cooperate well with a team that is spread across the world are all essential.
