The position will suit news-driven reporters looking to take their journalism skills to the next level in a busy newswire environment with a global reach.

Montel’s journalists are some of the most experienced in the energy markets, offering the right candidate a unique environment in which to thrive. We offer a competitive salary and benefits.
