Dubai, UAE: Middle East Deputy Bureau Chief - Dow Jones

Job Vacancy: 
Middle East Deputy Bureau Chief - Dow Jones

Dubai, UAE

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal’s Middle East bureau is seeking a deputy bureau chief to help spearhead coverage of a volatile region home to big, fascinating stories.

The Middle East is part of a larger geopolitical mosaic, and the deputy will be at the center of efforts to explain how developments in the region may connect to policy in Washington and reverberate through the global economy. The goal will be to tell signature stories on a range of subjects, among them: tensions in the Persian Gulf with Iran, the social and economic transformation in Saudi Arabia, and the fragile state of countries emerging from war with Islamic State.

We’re looking for a player-coach—someone who excels at balancing the pull of one’s own projects with the demands of shepherding the ambitious work of others. Above all, you must be someone who leads by example. Management experience isn't necessary, but establishing smooth and productive relationships with colleagues is a critical part of the job. A track record of breaking ambitious business stories would set you apart in the application process.

The reward for this challenging role is having a hand in shaping the Journal's widely-read Middle East coverage and working shoulder-to-shoulder with a great team of journalists in some of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. Knowledge of the region is preferred but not a deal-breaker for the right candidate.

The role is based in Dubai and reports to the Middle East and North Africa bureau chief.
