Description

REFI Europe, a publication of Pageant Media, is seeking a reporter to cover European real estate private equity funds. While familiarity with the commercial real estate market or financial journalism experience is a plus, what’s more important is enthusiasm for a role that combines traditional reporting with a more analytical and visual approach to putting together stories.

Our publication is targeted toward senior executives at the most prominent real estate private equity funds and up-and-coming players in this exciting global industry.

  • A proven ability to break exclusive news and write compelling and insightful analysis
  • Keen analytical and feature writing abilities
  • An understanding of the real estate sector, or at least decent financial/business reporting experience preferred
  • Excellent networking skills and a track record of developing useful contacts and sources
  • Excellent time management and organisational skills

Responsibilities

  • Write daily news articles and break stories
  • Pitch and work on well-researched analytical pieces with minimal supervision
  • Work with the editorial and production teams on the newsletter
