Reuters is looking for an enterprising reporter to help us expand and deepen our coverage of stories that connect the dots between the policies and pronouncements of the Trump administration and changes on the ground for individuals, families, businesses and interest groups. While legislation in Congress on many of President Trump’s campaign promises has been largely stalled, other changes – from regulatory rollbacks to executive orders to changes in the way laws are enforced – have the potential to reshape the rules of the game for industries from trucking to solar power and on issues from drug testing for unemployed job seekers to the outlook for for-profit colleges.

The successful candidate will work with other Reuters journalists across the United States to combine reporting from inside and outside Washington. The aim is to produce investigative or explanatory stories on how the Trump administration is changing the way the federal government operates and the consequences of those decisions. Experience in coverage of companies and the interplay of regulation and corporate interests is required as is a track record of writing about complicated issues of government policy in a compelling way. The successful candidate should also have experience gathering and analyzing data to tell stories and stress-test claims – and have a keen interest in working on other stories covered by the National Affairs team including the 2018 mid-term elections.

The reporter will be part of the U.S. National Affairs team with a mission of providing distinctive coverage of the most important national stories in the United States for Reuters' global audience of financial professionals and media subscribers. The job reports to National Affairs Editor Jason Szep and is based in Washington.
