Full Time

POLITICO Europe is looking for two policy reporters to be based in London.

Brexit is the biggest story in British politics — but it has really only just begun. With negotiations between London and Brussels on the U.K.’s future relationship with the EU soon to enter a new phase, we are expanding our award-winning Brexit coverage.

We are looking for two experienced policy reporters to boost our reporting on what the U.K.’s departure from the EU will mean for key sectors of the economy.

They will work closely with POLITICO’s Westminster lobby and London policy teams as well as our reporters in Brussels and EU national capitals. The successful candidates will have an eye for detail and a track record of rigorous reporting and policy-focused scoops.

They should already have contacts within Westminster and Whitehall and a deep understanding of how policy is made and influenced by people within and outside government. An understanding of EU policy-making, and experience of reporting in Brussels or elsewhere in the EU27, would also be an advantage.

The roles will cover a broad and non-traditional policy beat requiring flexible reporters who are able to adapt to the needs of the story. They will, for example, cover how the U.K.’s evolving relationship with the EU impacts the regulatory environment for business; trade policy; changes to agriculture and environment policy; customs, transport and logistics; and workforce/hiring issues for companies.


  • College degree or equivalent
  • At least two years’ newsroom experience
  • Written and verbal fluency in English
  • Fluency in other European languages a strong plus
