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 is looking for a reporter to cover U.S. banking, with a particular focus on Bank of America and Wells Fargo.

The right applicant will have a natural curiosity about all things financial, and be able to leverage that curiosity into scoops, enterprise stories and well-rounded analyses of breaking news. Sometimes that means digesting a confusing earnings report to explain how a bank’s businesses are performing, or spotting the gem within a 1,000-page regulatory filing. Other times it means developing sources who work at banks, represent banks or do business with banks, and can help Reuters reveal a crucial set of facts that readers would not otherwise know.

Covering Bank of America and Wells Fargo means covering two major players in consumer finance, from mortgage lending to managing retirement savings. BofA also has a major Wall Street bank, while Wells Fargo has been grappling with fallout from a sales scandal for over a year. The two banks are operating in a regulatory environment that is changing under the Trump administration, and how that is playing out within the industry is another crucial part of the beat.

That is to say: covering Bank of America and Wells Fargo means having at least a working knowledge of a wide range of businesses and topics, or being a quick learner.

Most importantly, we want a reporter with a proven track record of breaking big stories. We welcome applicants who have experience covering big banks and come with a long list of sources. Strong leadership skills are a plus as the reporter will be part of our global finance team, and may have the opportunity to lead stories and work collaboratively with reporters and editors in other bureaus. 

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.

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.
