Cairo, Egypt: Egypt & North Africa Bureau Chief - Bloomberg News

Job Vacancy: 
Egypt & North Africa Bureau Chief - Bloomberg News

Cairo, Egypt

Bloomberg is seeking an experienced journalist to lead our team of reporters in Egypt and North Africa and drive our coverage, with a focus on the geopolitical and economic upheavals roiling this energy-rich region.
Based in Cairo, the bureau chief is responsible for news and enterprise in five countries; from Libya, where political divisions threaten vital oil exports, to Egypt, which is nearing the end of an IMF-backed reform program, to Tunisia, where the Arab Spring protests began.
We're looking for a natural leader who can make a fast judgment call on breaking news, edit copy and write the big story of the day with authority, untangling complex issues for a global audience. You'll be comfortable managing staff, nurturing younger reporters and getting the best out of stringers working in often-difficult or dangerous environments.
Key to this role is our coverage of the economy -- particularly in Egypt -- and the geopolitical developments that drive frontier and emerging markets. You will be first and foremost a journalist; building sources on this important beat, writing your own authoritative stories and working with reporters to produce scoops and innovative enterprise.
