US News Reporter
Editorial | London, United Kingdom | Full Time
Business Insider is hiring an experienced US News reporter for our London office.
We run a 24-hour news site and London is a crucial part of that operation.
The ideal candidate is a sharp, fast, and independent writer who can quickly identify the biggest story of the day, starting every morning with a bang.
Your articles will be read by millions of people, and will often be the top post on the website.
The role will be varied, fast-paced, and at times a little chaotic. One minute you could be putting the latest presidential tweet-storm into context and the next writing a curtain-raiser for mid-term elections or chasing down the real story behind the latest White House announcement.
This would position would be perfect for someone with either:
- experience in a major domestic US newsroom
- experience covering the US for an international publication
We want an expert reporter with several years’ experience in online media. Great judgment, speed, and excellent headline-writing are the most important skills.
As well as being in the thick of the daily news cycle, the role will include space to pursue exclusives and longer-form reporting. This is a collaborative role, working with our global news team in London as well as editors across Business Insider and its sister site INSIDER.
Business Insider has a strong commitment to accuracy and objectivity, which you would be expected to embody in everything you write.
Apply here if this sounds like your dream job. Please include a link to your LinkedIn account, five recent clips, and a cover letter of fewer than 300 words.
Please note this is a full-time position based in our London office and requires UK or EU work authorisation. Business Insider offers competitive compensation packages complete with benefits.
