  • Assisting the Content Team and wider company with upcoming event preparation and coverage.

Progression Objectives

  • Leading editorial pitches with efforts to work on more analytical, ‘investigative’ pieces;
  • Confident reaching out to potential sources;
  • Attending events as a Finextra representative;
  • Initiating and maintaining relationships with sources and PR agencies to build up network of contacts.

Person Specification

  • An enthusiastic, can-do attitude;
  • 2 years of experience in content or Editorial Assistant level;
  • Proven and demonstrable professional level of writing and editing skills;
  • Journalism experience; degree and/or NCTJ training preferable but not necessary;
