Job Position: Bureau Chief

Ref No: JREQ087989
Location: Lagos
Schedule: Full-time
Job Type: Standard
Shift: Day Job

Job Description
The successful candidate, based in Lagos, will drive our coverage of Africa’s most populous nation, its biggest oil producer and largest economy.
The role demands an enterprising and ambitious Journalist who can lead by example.
We want a bureau chief who embodies all those qualities and more.
The right person will help our financial readers understand the complexities of doing business in Nigeria, and provide our media clients around the globe with compelling reporting on the country’s colourful political and cultural life, from Nobel prize-winning authors to internationally renowned musicians and mega-star Christian preachers.
They will be able to handle both breaking news and longer-term investigative efforts.
And they will be at home telling stories in text, graphics, video and photographs.
S/he must be adept across a broad range of topics, able to turn their hand from the battle against Boko Haram in the remote north or the impact on global energy markets of an oil spill in the Niger Delta; from intrigue inside the presidential palace to unorthodox efforts by the central bank to defend the country’s currency.
S/he must have a proven track record of breaking exclusive news and of longer-format reporting and writing, as well as an aptitude for multi-media story-telling.
Willingness to work in hostile and difficult environments, dealing with security threats, uncooperative authorities and poor communications are essential.
But for all Nigeria’s myriad problems and challenges, it is an immensely rewarding place to work: Nigerians are among the most optimistic, engaging and innovative people in Africa, adept at finding a solution to whatever life, the economy or the government throws at them.
Required Skills and Experience

Strong writing and reporting skills, and experience in multi-media story-telling.
Proven ability to lead from the front, breaking news and setting the agenda.
Strong leadership skills to inspire, train and manage a large, diverse team.
Hostile environment experience and the ability to make decisions under pressure.
Fluency in one of Nigeria’s main languages is helpful but not obligatory.
Knowledge of financial, business and corporate reporting, preferably in Africa.
Ability to generate great story ideas, including enterprise pieces.
