Bureau Chief, Delhi

Bureau Chief, Delhi

We are seeking an experienced journalist and dynamic leader to head our bureau in Delhi, India's vibrant capital. India is going through a fundamental change under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's nationalist administration. The government has taken up a series of economic reforms, like a unified goods and services tax, and is trying to attract foreign investment, as it hopes to create jobs in a country with 1.3 billion people. But it is also widely seen as pushing a Hindu-first agenda, a charge that is drawing criticism from the opposition and worrying the country's sizeable minority population. All this is ample grist for insightful stories that can cut through the chaos and help global readers and investors better understand Asia's third-largest economy and where it is headed.

The Delhi bureau includes the Money, Politics and General News, and the Commodities teams, and is the de-facto center for covering India and the region. Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Maldives are overseen from the bureau as is our network of stringers around the region. The bureau also supports and reinforces the Afghanistan and Pakistan bureaus as needed.

The bureau chief will write and report their own stories and work closely with a talented and energetic multimedia team to develop enterprising ideas. The successful candidate will also ensure that our breaking news coverage and timings are strong in a fiercely competitive market with demanding clients.

The bureau chief will collaborate with colleagues - text, pictures, TV and graphics - around the region and deputise for the South Asia bureau chief. Strong people and organisational skills, as well as a sense of humour and a calm head, are crucial to succeed in this role.

Key Skills:

  • Proven writing, story-breaking and editing ability
  • Experience leading teams and coaching and developing reporters
  • Excellent news judgment and a cool head under pressure
  • Understanding of customer needs and deep experience in at least one asset class
  • Ability to work well in a pan-regional multimedia team a must
  • Experience working in hostile environments will be an advantage
