Financial News Writers for New York Bureau
Proactive Investors is an established financial media portal based in the UK that’s currently expanding editorial operations in North America with a news desk in Midtown Manhattan. For 10 years we’ve been providing up-to-the-minute coverage of breaking business news, commentary and analysis on thousands of listed and pre-IPO companies worldwide from our headquarters in London, with bureaus in Toronto, Vancouver and Sydney.

From our state-of-the-art bureau in Midtown Manhattan we’ll initiate news coverage of US markets and public companies.

Our multimedia platform is complemented by quality events management, smart investor relations delivery and highly respected research. We offer a suite of news, multimedia, and investment research tools that enable companies and investors to connect intelligently. We also deliver targeted content to many of the world’s largest news amalgamators, financial websites, and news-tracking services. And we provide commentary to dozens of leading investor-focused websites, breaking down our offerings into focused industry sectors, themes and topics.
Who we’re looking for
You are financially savvy, good at turning a phrase, have an eye for detail, and unfazed by writing under deadline pressure. The ideal candidate has no less than two to five years of experience writing for a newspaper, newswire, or specialist website covering public companies, financial markets or both. Knowledge or experience covering biotech, the cannabis business, fintech or small-cap growth companies is a big plus. You demonstrate an understanding of how and why news coming from public companies generates value for investors.
Minimum Requirements
·        Bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications or related discipline.
·        At least two to five years of reporting experience.
·        A willingness to learn and to develop new skills.
·        The ability to leverage coverage using social media.
What we offer
·        A competitive salary and attractive benefits package.
·        Opportunities for career enhancement. We are in a growth phase currently and can offer the opportunity for professional development.
·        Possibility to work abroad. We have offices around the world and we’re keen for employees to take advantage of the various options that brings.
·        A chance to join the team at our new office in Midtown Manhattan at one of the best-known names in financial markets in the UK, Australia and Canada.
