Finance writer

Finance is a wide-ranging beat, and this reporter will be expected to have a proven command of how different markets and industry players are related and regulated. She or he must be strongly motivated to understand complex financial concepts and phenomena from the inside out--be it banks’ off-balance-sheet operations, bond traders’ under-the-table repurchase agreements, or trust companies serving as a conduit helping substandard firms get bank loans. Ideal candidates must be able to explain those things in plain language to readers who are not financial experts, keeping the use of jargon to a minimum.

The finance writer will work closely with Caixin’s Chinese reporters and editors to organize and rewrite material they contribute, with an eye on different expectations of domestic and foreign audiences.

Requirements: At least three years of working experience in financial reporting at major domestic or foreign news outlets. Strong command of Chinese and English and strong translating skills are a must.
