Financial Services Reporter (Brussels)


POLITICO Europe is looking for a reporter to drive our coverage of financial politics and policy. 

The ideal candidate will be an aggressive reporter who understands how finance works, and is equally comfortable navigating a bank balance sheet as they are interviewing top policymakers on the EU’s economic decisions. We’re looking for a reporter with demonstrable experience of covering fiscal policy and the deep sourcing required to break news in this area. 

Working closely with colleagues in London, Paris, Frankfurt and Washington, this reporting role involves connecting Europe’s major financial and economic news with the politics of the Continent and breaking news on policy for both specialized and general readers.

The position is a full-time role based in our Brussels office. 


Role and responsibilities

We’re looking for a confident source builder: the reporter will be competing in a space where deep sourcing is vital and breaking news is the primary goal.

Alongside breaking news, the reporter will jointly author a must-read morning newsletter.

The successful candidate will be able not only to write authoritatively about the high-level political priorities behind financial regulation, but also cater to a sophisticated audience of insiders for POLITICO Pro, our subscription news service.



  • Reporter with experience covering financial policy, economics and/or business
  • Knowledge of European politics and policy
  • Strong English-language writing skills
  • Prior academic coursework in economics preferred
  • Ability to work under pressure and on deadline
  • Knowledge of other European languages is a plus
