You will demonstrate your ability in an industry that is at the heart of the economy at a time when it is going through a seismic shift. The growth of online selling is changing how we shop; this is requiring traditional brick-and-mortar retailers to adapt the ways they do business.

  • Ownership of a beat focused on the retail industry
  • Tremendous opportunity to grow personally and professionally in a dynamic newsroom with multiple reporting and editorial career paths
  • Gain in-depth understanding of corporate and market dynamics
  • Opportunities to enrich your ability to deliver high-quality news
  • Build a robust network of industry and professional contacts
  • Collaborate with colleagues who share deep knowledge and passion about the sectors they cover
  • Enjoy a casual working environment

Responsibilities:
