Job Description:

We’re looking for an experienced reporter to cover Canada’s financial services sector, including the five big banks, its dealmakers and watchdogs.

This reporter will work closely with the deals team to ensure that the bureau can continue to play a role in helping to break cross-border deals. At the same time, the reporter will take on the five big Canadian banks at a time when the slump in prices of crude oil and other commodities has exposed these lenders to higher potential losses. The growing concerns about a housing bubble and overextended consumer credit would be a key part of this beat, which would include residential and commercial real estate.

While the beat coverage is important, GA duties would also be part of the job. The successful applicant should be able to write authoritatively on the country’s biggest companies and companies of interest, and also help cover parts of theCanadian economy that are largely handled out of U.S. bureaus, such as the auto and airline industries. Breaking news duties, which have ranged from politics to school shootings on a native reserve and a lone-wolf terror attack in Ottawa, would also be part of the role.

Applications should include a resume, cover letter, and up to five published clips.
