European columnist

We are looking for a columnist to join our crack European team.

Building on our long-established reputation for speed, accuracy, clarity and insight, you will craft incisive views on deals, corporate strategy, markets, economics and policy. You must have razor-sharp analytical skills and the ability to tackle complex concepts with lively, engaging arguments.

Though writing experience is a distinct advantage, an understanding of finance and a reliable stream of original ideas are equally important.

What it involves: 

  • Researching and writing strong, original views on European business, finance and economics – both responding rapidly to breaking news and setting the agenda
  • Presenting ideas in fresh and interesting ways, including the use of interactive graphics
  • Developing contacts with senior executives, financiers and policymakers
  • Working with columnists and editors in Europe, Asia and the United States to develop ideas and illuminate cross-border themes


What’s required:

  • A firm grasp of the basic concepts of corporate finance and business
  • The ability to formulate strong, well-argued opinions under tight deadlines
  • A base of high-level contacts among bankers, investors and policymakers
  • Experience of presenting your views to a sophisticated financial audience


Desired skills:

  • A working knowledge of multiple European languages
  • Experience of engaging with an online audience


Please apply with a CV and a covering letter by Friday September 21st to peter.thal.larsen@thomsonreuters.com
