P&G Correspondent, India

Job Description

Reuters is looking for a top-notch reporter on the Money, Politics and General News team to cover one of the region's most compelling stories out of New Delhi. India is going through fundamental change under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's administration as it tries to drive economic growth while pushing through a Hindu-first agenda that has raised deep concern about the future of a country long celebrated for its diversity.

We are looking for someone who can report and write the broader political story with flair and originality as we head into a national election. The focus will be on the Politics and General news part of the equation but we expect the successful candidate to be able to cover policy developments and join the politics with the economics. In a country of 1.3 billion people, more than two thirds of them young, this is an India bursting with energy and ideas, but constraints remain that have hobbled growth and led to high levels of inequality. The successful candidate would also have to be comfortable covering everything from conflicts to violent crime with the ground situation on the boil in Kashmir and a rise in the number of rape reports dominating headlines.

We would like to see a track record of developing sources and conceiving smart ideas in the successful candidate. As a member of the MPG team in a relatively small bureau, we would expect you to cover the big breaking news, do pieces to camera and sometimes shoot pictures and video on their phones. Ideally, we are looking for someone who is comfortable working across spectrum of stories in a fast-paced environment, from sending out alerts and breaking news to working on deeper enterprise stories.

Key Skills:

A track record of building sources and breaking news

Excellent news judgment and experience writing trunks and general news stories

A desire to tell the story in multiple formats

Experience working in hostile environments will be an advantage

Experience - not less than 5 years
