We’re looking for a bright and motivated Research Assistant to support our crack team of editors and columnists in Europe.

This is a great opportunity for someone interested in learning about financial commentary from the ground up. You will be interested in digging into financial data; publishing and promoting columns and podcasts; and helping to develop compelling and punchy arguments.

You will possess exceptional organizational skills, a sharp eye for editorial style and detail, and the ability to juggle multiple projects at the same time.

It’s an entry-level position, which means you’ll be involved in many aspects of our output. Our research assistants play a critical role in filtering news stories, publishing our views, promoting Breakingviews on social media, and helping organise events. Over time, we’ll teach you how to write.

To be our Research Assistant, you will likely have:

  • A knack for quick learning and getting to grips with complex topics
  • Web publishing skills, or an appetite to develop them
  • A keen proofreader’s eye, so you can police copy for style and consistency
  • The ability to work quickly and reliably to tight deadlines


It would be helpful, but not essential if you also have:

  • A working knowledge of finance and business
  • Familiarity with organising data and creating charts and graphics
  • Working knowledge of European languages, particularly German, Spanish and French

Please note, the deadline for applications is 24th December 2021.
