The position also involves working closely with bureau colleagues in covering the remarkable array of business and technology developments that are currently under way in Silicon Valley. The successful candidate will be an experienced business reporter who is equally comfortable handling fast-breaking news and deep enterprise reporting. The ability to develop sources, break news, write quickly and clearly, and work effectively with a highly secretive company are essential. Creativity with story ideas, discernment in deciding what’s news and what isn’t, and the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues in San Francisco, New York and multiple bureaus in Asia are also crucial. The Apple beat is among the most competitive in all of journalism, and thus the successful candidate must be someone who thrives on that competition and is willing to go the extra mile to break news.

Reuters is seeking a journalist who is a proven news breaker and deeply sourced professional to cover the U.S. Federal Reserve from Washington. We need someone with a hefty record in delivering ahead-of-the-curve initiative reporting and agenda-setting stories, who is comfortable handling breaking news, and whose prose stands out for its clarity. The Fed is one of Washington’s most cloistered institutions, so the winning candidate will need excellent source-building skills. Moreover, this reporter must be capable of generating smart and incisive copy that takes readers beyond the bank’s clutch of annual public events to paint the big picture about the future policy track for the world’s most important central bank. The Fed is at a critical juncture. It about to welcome a new chair and vice chair just as the Fed is preparing to wind down the greatest monetary policy experiment of all time. A mountain of unanswered questions on the direction of U.S. monetary policy, the U.S. and global economies and world financial markets will emerge in the wake of this high-stakes act.
