The Financial Times’ Lex Column is seeking a new writer in New York

The role requires writing short, rigorous opinion pieces about the corporate, economic and financial issues of the day. Applicants should be equally at home with English prose, company accounts, and market analysis. Required personality traits include a sense of humour, hatred of jargon and scepticism about received wisdom.

Ideal candidates may currently work in finance while dreaming of intellectual liberation. Highly financially numerate journalists should apply as well.

The esteemed Lex column is written by a 10-member team in New York, London and Hong Kong. It has existed for nearly 70 years and is read by leaders in business, finance and politics, giving writers access to high-level sources and an opportunity to shape the global agenda. Read about Lex here:
