Last Word is offering an exciting opportunity to join the editorial team as a news reporter for International Adviser. We are looking for a news-hungry investment journalist to write for www.international-adviser.com. Based in Last Word’s London office, the successful candidate will provide readers with daily news, much of which will be self-generated.
International Adviser is read by intermediaries based in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia who advise clients on international fund, life and banking products, as well as the structure of tax-efficient solutions for their cross-border needs.
We are looking for someone who is an eager, energetic and enthusiastic journalist, who is keen to get to grips with the subject matter. While no specific cross-border industry experience is necessary, experience of financial services would be ideal, with any pensions, tax or legal experience an added bonus.
The role would suit someone who has at least one year’s experience as a journalist in the financial services and is looking to work for a global organisation in a challenging role. The candidate must be keen to learn the tax rules surrounding international life and investment products in different jurisdictions, and be eager to chase stories, use a CMS and be an autonomous part of a highly motivated team.
The successful applicant will be joining an experienced, award-winning editorial team in which autonomy is expected and flexibility is given. The full remuneration package includes a competitive salary, dependent on skills and experience. Please send your CV and a one-page cover letter to and you can review us at www.lastwordmedia.com.
