Research Assistant

Reuters Breakingviews is 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.

Essential Skills:

  • 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

Desired Skills:

  • 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
