Financial Services Editor


POLITICO is seeking a talented editor to lead our coverage of financial politics and policy in Brussels.

As Europe faces a new inflation crisis, this editor will be responsible for fostering top-notch stories from a team of expert journalists.

Ideal candidates will have sharp, hands-on editing skills, a passion for digital journalism, proven leadership skills and interest in financial services, regulation, innovation and fiscal policymaking.

We’re seeking an editor with the vision to inspire reporters to break news and 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.

The role is a busy, hands-on editing job running one of POLITICO’s flagship subscription products and bringing finance stories to life for a wider audience. This editor will work closely with the editorial leadership team to grow our finance coverage.

The ideal candidate will have a track record of directing global news reporting and an ability to connect Europe’s major financial and economic news with the politics of the Continent and breaking news on policy. The role would suit an experienced journalist who enjoys setting the agenda and has the confidence to collaborate comfortably with reporting teams in Brussels, London, Washington and elsewhere.

Responsibilities include:

  • Set the direction for finance coverage and line edit copy
  • Manage financial services reporters working on both subscription and free-to-read products
  • Generate distinctive and innovative ways to tell stories
  • Feed into discussions about how to grow POLITICO’s audience, reach and impact

The ideal candidate:

  • Demonstrable interest in financial services and fiscal policy
  • Strong track record of sharp editing and excellent news judgment
  • Written and verbal fluency in English 
  • Strong attention to detail and confident digging into policy coverage in depth
  • Comfortable working at speed and developing longer-term projects
  • Confident representing POLITICO at live events or on broadcast
