Job Opportunity: Apply to become AltFi's new first-rate reporter.
We’ve had an incredible 12 months of growth at AltFi, and now we’re looking for a Junior Reporter to help grow our coverage of fintech, digital banking and alternative finance.
Our ideal candidate might be a graduate or someone looking for a career change, but most important is that they have a grasp of the basics of both news and feature-writing.
Successful applicants will be able to show their proven experience and aptitude in journalism, or demonstrable enthusiasm to become a first-rate reporter i.e. work experience placements, clippings, etc.
We’re after someone with an interest in our changing relationship with money—think mobile banks like Monzo, free share trading apps like Freetrade, and the world of alternative finance where Funding Circle and Moneybox are building new opportunities for investors.
AltFi runs an entrepreneurial newsroom in the heart of London, so the dream candidate would turn up each day with their own ideas to bring to the table, whether for stories, features, podcasts, newsletters, even events.
We’re looking for someone keen to build their own network of contacts and sources in the sectors we cover, and build a reputation for themselves, getting to know the companies and people who are leading the financial revolution, and telling their stories.
Journalism training or media law training is a plus, but not essential.
Our interview process for shortlisted candidates will involve a writing test, phone interview, in-person interview and a paid trial shift.
Applications are open on LinkedIn Jobs now.
