Careers opportunities with Mergermarket Group

Europe M&A Reporter

Mergermarket, London

Company Description:

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.

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

Job 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.

Key Skills & Knowledge:

Candidates should have strong English writing and interpersonal skills, detailed-oriented and 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.

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

This role offers a competitive salary. If you are interested in applying for this role, please send your CV and cover letter quoting ‘Europe M&A ReporterFebruary 2017’ to careers@mergermarket.com.

The posting date of this position is 2nd February 2017 and the closing date for this position is 2nd March 2017. The location of the role is London.

The Mergermarket Group is fully committed to a policy of non-discrimination and to promoting equality of opportunity in employment on grounds of merit, experience, skills and aptitude in order to maximise the full potential of both existing and prospective employees
