Hiring blue 20 Jul 2021

 

Total Derivatives, a financial news and analysis service for fixed income professionals, is looking for a senior journalist to cover the European interest rate markets.

 

The journalist will be encouraged to write features and/or technical articles, as well as reporting on what’s driving the price action from day to day.

 

It's a role that requires frequent contact with traders, issuers, investors and other key market participants. Reporting has to be accurate, timely and succinct.

 

Total Derivatives' office is in London but the role could be remote and/or part-time for the right candidate. Our team is comprised of a mixture of ex-traders and financial journalists, who together produce market-leading coverage of interest rate swaps, options, inflation and structured notes. Its subscribers are typically in senior roles at major financial institutions.

 

The ideal candidate will have some experience in rate sales, trading, structuring or strategy. However, financial journalists with excellent contacts and good product knowledge are also encouraged to apply. A solid understanding of fixed income markets is required, along with the ability to source and communicate news.

 

Remuneration is competitive and includes a bonus component.

 

If you know anyone who may be interested, please ask them to get in touch with Mark Ramsden, the Editor, in complete confidence for an informal discussion about the role.
