Jerusalem, Israel: Senior Correspondent, Israel & Palestinian Territories - Reuters


Job Vacancy: 
Senior Correspondent, Israel & Palestinian Territories - Reuters

Jerusalem, Israel

Closing Date: 21st July 2024

Reuters is seeking an energetic, self-starting and resourceful Senior Correspondent based in Jerusalem to break news, dig for exclusives and deliver deeply researched stories that will help set the agenda in Israel and the Palestinian Territories. The Gaza War, the most devastating conflict for decades in a region with no shortage of traumatic events, is likely to shape this region and its people for generations to come.

The successful candidate will be bursting with ideas and have a passion for wearing out shoe leather to deliver high-impact stories that will attract attention in a highly competitive environment. This will require a willingness to report on everything from Jewish settlers in the West Bank and militant activity in Palestinian cities to social divisions in Israeli society and crippled communities in devastated Gaza (when more reporters are finally able to return there).

The successful candidate will also be keen to follow the money when it matters, whether that relates to Israeli tech investments and their growing clout in the world of intelligence and beyond or chasing down the West Bank businesses that could become big beneficiaries of Gaza’s reconstruction.

This position will require a reporter with resilience, persistence and creativity when the going gets tough and when the routes to a story seem blocked, as well as the ability to nurture and build sources in a region where secrecy is part of official DNA on both sides.

As with any Reuters position, working closely with visuals is paramount. The post will require a readiness to work with a cool head in hostile environments, while always operating in line with Reuters security guidance.

This is a position that offers huge potential for the right journalist with stamina and determination, and a readiness to cover one of the world’s biggest and emotive stories with patience and balance.
