Athens, Greece: Greece and Balkans Bureau Chief - Reuters

Job Vacancy: 
Greece and Balkans Bureau Chief - Reuters

Athens, Greece

Closing Date: 31st January 2023

Reuters is looking for a bureau chief to lead its news coverage across Greece and the Balkans.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious journalist keen to make their mark in a region rich with fascinating stories.

In the Balkans, tension between Kosovo and Serbia is testing NATO’s ability to keep a fragile peace while Western Europe and Russia jostle for influence in the region. That’s against a darkening economic outlook as environmental concerns and depopulation cloud investments in minerals and energy.

In Greece, the economy has emerged from a decade-long debt crisis though its plans to return to investment grade status in 2023 will be tested by the spike in inflation. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is hoping to win a second term in office but may struggle to form a stable government, risking a fresh period of instability just as tensions with Turkey are rising.

A successful candidate for this role will ensure Reuters delivers fast and thorough coverage of the most important breaking news. They will also lead the team in producing high-impact stories that require some digging to find.

They will directly manage the text reporting teams in the region and also work closely with visuals staff to produce a rich and deep news file across all mediums.
