Total Derivatives, a financial newswire for fixed income professionals, is looking to hire a senior journalist to cover the European interest rate markets.
Although based in London, the role allows hybrid working and can be full-time or part-time, depending on the candidate.
The journalist will be encouraged to write features and/or technical articles, as well as reporting on what’s driving the price action from day to day. The job requires frequent contact with traders, issuers, investors and other key market participants. Reporting has to be accurate, timely and succinct.
Total Derivatives' global team is a mixture of former traders and financial journalists, who together produce market-leading coverage of interest rate swaps, options, inflation and structured notes. Its readers are based at banks, hedge funds, asset managers, inter-dealer brokers and SSAs.
The ideal candidate will have some experience in rate sales, trading, structuring or strategy. However, financial journalists with excellent contacts and good product knowledge are also encouraged to apply. A solid understanding of interest rate derivatives is required, along with an ability to source and communicate news.
Remuneration is competitive and includes a bonus component.
If you know anyone who may be interested, please ask them to get in touch with Mark Ramsden, the editor, in complete confidence for an informal discussion about the role.
Total Derivatives is part of Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC and has offices in London, NY and HK.
