Poland Correspondent

Job Description

Poland Correspondent

Reuters is looking for a journalist to cover economic and monetary policy in Poland. We want a fast writer and a versatile reporter who is equally comfortable covering a central bank news conference and developing insightful and original analysis.

Poland's GDP growth is among the highest in Europe, benefitting from robust consumption and foreign demand. But uncertainty over long-term prospects is mounting, with Warsaw's conservative government undermining ties with European Union allies and advocating increased state control over the economy. Investors are wary of protectionism, the potential for lavish spending ahead of a string of elections in the coming years, and Poland's future place in European policy-making.

Beyond a strong journalism background and excellent English-language writing ability, the job requires good organizational skills and an ability to work under extreme time pressure. The reporter will work closely with a team of six Polish- and English-language correspondents, participate in slot duties, and occasionally cover political and corporate news. At least three years in journalism is required. Fluent Polish is essential.

Required Skills:

  • Excellent news judgement
  • Knowledge of macroeconomics
  • Strong news writing ability
  • Experience working in a real-time news environment
  • Proven ability to generate original story ideas & insightful analysis
  • Track record of working with speed, accuracy and to the highest ethical standards
  • Experience working closely with a team

Desired Skills:
  • Knowledge of the Polish economy an asset
  • Fluent Polish

Location: Warsaw
