Washington DC, US: Politics Reporter - Bloomberg

Job Vacancy: 
Politics Reporter - Bloomberg

Washington DC, US

The Role:
Bloomberg News is seeking a reporter in Washington to cover U.S. politics as President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party struggle to defend their hold on power heading into decisive elections in 2022 and 2024.

Top candidates will demonstrate a clear understanding of the American political landscape, including the enduring influence of Donald Trump and his impact on the Republican Party's prospects for retaking Congress and the White House. Ideal contenders will also show a firm grasp of the philosophical battles unfolding inside the Democratic party, between its moderate and progressive wings.

This reporter will be expected to land scoops from a deep network of sources driven by a desire to beat the competition at every turn. We also expect strong enterprise coverage that clearly explains the consequences of U.S. electoral politics to Bloomberg's sophisticated world-wide audience.

Prior experience covering Washington or a national political campaign is preferred but not essential. The role demands boundless energy, as it entails frequent travel along with weekend and after-hours work. The reporter will report to the Politics Team Leader in Washington but work with colleagues across Bloomberg's global newsroom on a range of topics, making collegiality and flexibility essential qualities.
