We are hiring a writer on economics, ideally based at first in London. Journalistic experience is not necessary. The ability to write clearly and entertainingly is crucial. So is a thorough understanding of economics and an ability to work with data.

The ideal candidate would have an interest in the economics of innovation and technology, but this is not essential. Regardless of their precise beat, the writer will be expected to produce original and striking journalism that is capable of holding the cover of The Economist, and to contribute to the newspaper’s “Free exchange” column. They will also be expected to appear on podcasts and films.

Applicants should send a CV and a sample article, suitable for publication in The Economist, to: [email protected]. It should be unpublished and no longer than 700 words. Some examples of relevant coverage are listed below. The deadline is May 14th.
