Thomson Reuters News & Editorial 10/9/2017 1:23:46 PM New York, NY United States of America
Job Description

Reuters, the news and media division of Thomson Reuters, is the world’s largest international multimedia news provider reaching more than one billion people every day. Reuters provides trusted business, financial, national, and international news to professionals via Thomson Reuters desktops, the world's media organizations, and directly to consumers at Reuters.com.

We’re looking for an established equity market news professional to lead our fast-paced coverage of the U.S. stock market in New York. The team is responsible for Reuters coverage of the daily activity in U.S. equities, including production of the widely read market wrap and, more importantly, for delivering up-to-the-minute news on the movement of individual stocks now aggregated in our Stocks Buzz news feed. We’re looking for someone who can lead the charge to unearth the reasons for sudden changes in stock prices and share volumes, as well as to break news on publicly traded companies from within the market. Stocks Buzz has won praise and has a loyal following from our core Eikon and Thomson One subscribers, and the person selected for this post will have a key role in strengthening that client relationship.

As the public face of our newsroom for Wealth Management customers and stakeholders, the individual will meet regularly with both client-facing staff inside the Thomson Reuters Finance & Risk unit and with subscribers themselves. Inside the busy New York newsroom, the stocks team is the nexus between our coverage of U.S. companies, the U.S. economy and of the region’s equity markets, the largest and deepest in the world. Understanding the myriad ways Corporate America interacts with Wall Street is essential, as is a can-do attitude toward bolstering our coverage of companies. Stocks Buzz is an important component of that, but hardly the only one. The team generates other high-value content, including analyses, Insights and, increasingly, graphics-led stories. The successful candidate must be a proven idea generator and, just as importantly, must demonstrate an ability to foster ideas from the team.

Requirements:

  • At least seven years of experience covering or leading the coverage of financial markets or institutions
  • Deep knowledge of equity markets and companies, including corporate financial statements, and a familiarity with competing asset classes such as bonds
  • Demonstrated experience in the use of sophisticated market, corporate and economic analytic tools (ie, Eikon, DataStream, charting) and in their application to the news file
  • Track record of engagement with customers and stakeholders, including buyside clients and our partners within Thomson Reuters

At Thomson Reuters, we believe what we do matters. We are passionate about our work, inspired by the impact it has on our business and our customers. As a team, we believe in winning as one - collaborating to reach shared goals, and developing through challenging and meaningful experiences. With more than 45,000 employees in more than 100 countries, we work flexibly across boundaries and realize innovations that help shape industries around the world. Making this happen is a dynamic, evolving process, and we count on each employee to be a catalyst in driving our performance - and their own.

As a global business, we rely on diversity of culture and thought to deliver on our goals. To ensure we can do that, we seek talented, qualified employees in all our operations around the world regardless of race, color, sex/gender, including pregnancy, gender identity and expression, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, citizen status, veteran status, or any other protected classification under country or local law. Thomson Reuters is proud to be an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer providing a drug-free workplace.
