The Wall Street Journal is looking for a deputy bureau chief to help run coverage for its bankruptcy group. This team covers some of the biggest Wall Street names and players focused on financial distress and special situations. In this role, you will help lead a team of reporters who break news and write analysis on corporate and municipal distress for The Wall Street Journal and its specialized WSJ Pro bankruptcy product. You will help drive our coverage of today’s biggest stories in retail, energy and distressed M&A as businesses and individuals try to regain their footing and emerge from the havoc brought on by the pandemic.
A strong knowledge of bankruptcy law and the various parties that shape bankruptcy proceedings is preferred, but we’re also open to candidates who have a strong knowledge of corporate finance and business. This role also requires a skilled editor comfortable with tight deadlines who can fashion stories and a daily newsletter for both the specialist readers of WSJ Pro and the more general readers of the Journal. We’re open-minded about candidates possibly taking a player-coach approach and writing select stories, though the primary focus is guiding and inspiring our team to turn out industry-leading coverage.
You will report to the WSJ Pro’s bankruptcy bureau chief. While you will likely start the job working remotely, you will eventually be based in our New York office.
To apply, please submit your resume and a cover letter explaining how you would approach the job and samples of writing or editing clips.
Provide sophisticated analysis that informs professionals in corporate restructuring.
Produce market moving scoops on distressed, corporate and municipal borrowers.
Elevate and shepherd bankruptcy stories to reach the wider Wall Street Journal audience.
