Total Derivatives, a financial newswire for fixed income professionals, is looking to hire a senior journalist to cover the European interest rate markets.
The journalist will be encouraged to write features and/or technical articles, as well as reporting on what’s driving the price action from day to day. It's a role that requires frequent contact with traders, issuers, investors and other key market participants. Reporting has to be accurate, timely and succinct.
The job is part-time and based in London. Total Derivatives global team is comprised of a mixture of former traders and financial journalists, who together produce market-leading coverage of interest rate swaps, options, inflation and structured notes. Its typical subscribers are based at banks, hedge funds, asset managers, inter-dealer brokers and SSAs.
The ideal candidate will have some experience in rate sales, trading, structuring or strategy. However, experienced financial journalists with excellent contacts and good product knowledge, are also encouraged to apply. A solid understanding of interest rate derivatives is required, along with an ability to source and communicate news.
Remuneration is competitive and includes a profit-share and/or bonus component. If you know anyone who may be interested, ask them to get in touch with Mark Ramsden, the editor, in complete confidence for an informal discussion about the role.
