Careers opportunities with Mergermarket Group

Europe M&A Reporter

Dealreporter, London

Description

Dealreporter, part of the Mergermarket Group, is looking for an ambitious and competitive Europe M&A journalist to write scoops on significant deals involving listed targets across the continent.

Our goal is to break M&A news and provide actionable intelligence for financial professionals.

The candidate should enjoy taking on intellectual challenges and have a track record in investigative reporting. The role involves breaking news and analysis throughout the life cycle of a deal. Our coverage spans from highlighting a potential transaction through to scooping the deal details and analysing reviews by competition authorities.

Fast-paced and focused on off-diary reporting, the position requires analytical skill, source-building know-how and a nose for a good lead. The right candidate will be as happy working on a story independently as with a team of sector specialists to cover a company or deal.

Candidates should have strong English writing and interpersonal skills, be detailed-oriented and have a keen interest in breaking financial news. They should also have the ability to build new sources, chase leads and pick up technical information swiftly and accurately.

Previous experience covering the Pharma and/or the Industrial sectors would be a plus.

European languages or a contact book of European advisory sources would be significant advantages.

The role is based in London.

Dealreporter is a fast-paced news service for hedge funds, equity finance desks, prop desks and fixed income investors.

Mergermarket Group’s team of multi-lingual journalists focus on high profile M&A, special situations and ECM deals, as well as providing detailed analysis on European large-cap corporates.

Key skills

- Inquisitive personality; detail-oriented

- Excellent networking and source development ability

- Strong English-language news writing skills

- Excellent interviewing technique for time-poor dealmakers/investors

- Previous experience at a financial news service, newspaper or online publication would be an advantage
