The Economist is looking to hire a staff writer to cover British economics. Journalistic experience is not necessary: the last few people to do this job had not been journalists before they arrived at the paper. The ability to write clearly and entertainingly is, however, crucial. So is the ability to spot intriguing patterns in data.
We test for these things mostly by asking for a sample article, which applicants should send, with a CV to: email@example.com. Please write up to 700 words. Your article could be on some aspect of British macro- or microeconomics, or on political economy.
More details about the position and how to apply can be found here.
