Job Summary: The Reporter will join the Wall Street Journal and will follow the massive amount of money flowing from Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Persian Gulf, with an eye to revealing its effects on everything from financial markets and global business to geopolitics. Coverage of Saudi Arabia, how Riyadh’s money gives it economic and political influence and how the Saudi royal family earns and spends its money, will anchor the beat. A big part of the job too will be keeping tabs on the Persian Gulf’s sovereign wealth funds, whose assets are bigger than the annual economic output of Russia and Brazil combined. We are looking for an intrepid journalist at home in different worlds. We need someone who can hobnob with private bankers and their wealthy clients, and extract impactful scoops and surprising enterprise features from them. The reporter will be our lead chronicler of the global rush to attract capital from the Persian Gulf and cover the IPO of the world’s biggest oil producer, Saudi Aramco.
Qualifications, Skills and Experience:
The applicant should have a good track record of generating scoops and enterprise features while staying on top of news.
