Reuters looking for a talented, well-organized news hound to be a part of Reuters’ Bangalore newsroom. The successful candidate will be a people person, a great communicator and, above all, should have a passion for news.

A degree in Journalism or equivalent experience, but it’s not a must. A fair knowledge of corporate activity and stock markets (or at least the ability to gain such knowledge quickly).
As a Reuters journalist you should:
- Be fairly comfortable with numbers to be able to cut through the corporate jargon to flesh out a top- notch readable story
- Write stories that are accurate, fast (we don’t report yesterday’s news), and are fair (every story has two sides)
- Have the news judgment to differentiate between news that can make or break a company and PR speak – and be able to prioritize news, analysis and views for an investment audience
- Have the ability to network and develop sources and contacts– you will be talking to CEOs, PR folks, analysts at top broker houses
- Spot trends that can be written into big picture stories like features or analysis
- Be able to rewrite headlines, news leads and captions to suit audience requirements
- Have a strong interest and expertise in monitoring international news wires and other outlets, including social media.
