The successful candidate will be expected to build up and cultivate a bulging book of helpful industry contacts and supply a regular stream of exclusive news articles, alongside longer in-depth analysis pieces exploring wider industry trends.

They will also cover events and industry conferences throughout the year, providing plenty of opportunities to travel and learn the space.

  • Build and maintain a contact book of senior industry professionals
  • Represent the Fund Intelligence brand at a range of events, conferences and summits

Requirements

  • At least two years of reporting experience, preferably in financial journalism
