Mergermarket US Ltd Reporter in London, United Kingdom

Activistmonitor, part of the Acuris group, is looking for an ambitious and competitive reporter to cover activism and corporate governance activity in Europe.

The role, based in London, is a 9-month maternity cover.

The role will largely focus on corporate governance and shareholder activism in Europe. The reporter will cover the impact of corporate governance changes on companies across Europe, conduct interviews with shareholder activists and identify potential leads based on shareholder activist campaigns. The right candidate would also be required to attend major sector events and conferences in Europe.

With a strong focus on investigative reporting and analysis, the right candidate should be as comfortable working independently as collaborating with a strong team of reporters and editors.

Job Qualifications:

  • Some experience in a news reporter role, ideally with a financial or legal focus
  • Keen interest in breaking financial news
  • Inquisitive personality
  • Outstanding networking and source development
  • Strong English-Language news writing skills
