Dow Jones is looking for a full-time news reporter to join its UK companies desk in Barcelona.
The Barcelona reporters fuel the real-time news and analysis service for financial professionals.

Exercise exceptional news judgment to identify news of importance to professionals, with ability to efficiently prioritize and summarize into smart briefs and subsequent analysis of what the news means for investors, extracting from a wealth of available content
