Inframation, the leading infrastructure finance intelligence service and part of Acuris, is looking for a driven scoop-focussed Journalist to spearhead our news gathering in the European, Middle Eastern and African markets. Reporting to the Editor for EMEA, you will direct a team of four Journalists reporting real-time news and analyses on PPPs and M&A transactions for a daily bulletin.
 
The role:
 
This is an editorial management role involving reporting and editing, which would suit a senior reporter with demonstrable managerial skills and experience working as a reporter on news desks driven by off-diary content and scoops.

Key responsibilities:
 
  • To lead the pastoral management of the EMEA reporting team and the editing of team copy, directing team news and news analysis priorities.
  • Working with the EMEA editor to ensure a daily bulletin of between 10 and 15 good quality news stories and make sure subscribers receive this at 9am or earlier each day.
  • To maintain copy discipline so that mistakes and corrections are minimised if not eliminated; working with the EMEA editor to deal quickly and professionally with complaints and queries and to act quickly to publish corrections where appropriate.
  • To ensure all published content is relevant to Inframation News coverage criteria and provide a full and detailed account of issues of interest to our readers.
  • To lead these efforts by example through the sourcing and publication of original exclusive stories which add significant value to Inframation News content.
