Reuters is seeking an outstanding journalist with a proven track record of breaking news and experience of editorial management to run its busy Mexico City bureau.

This role involves not only leading our large team of journalists in Mexico writing in English and Spanish, but also coordinating our coverage of Central America and supporting our reporters in the Caribbean.

The successful candidate will have strong news judgement and the ability to prioritize the most crucial stories for Reuters’ financial and media clients in an extremely busy news environment.

Mexico is a vital trading partner of the United States and we need to document how that relationship evolves under the USMCA trade agreement, as President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s government rolls back an energy liberalization introduced under the previous administration.

Mexico is home to a powerful manufacturing sector, which could benefit as US companies look to move closer to home, as well as an important mining industry and financial sector.

It is also the transit point for tens of thousands of migrants heading north towards the US border and harbors some of the world’s most powerful and violent criminal networks.

The successful candidate will have the ability to juggle all of this pressing areas of coverage, driving in-depth reporting and ensuring Reuters stays ahead of rival media outlets, while leading by example in developing sources and generating exclusives.

The Mexico City bureau chief must have the attention to detail and speed to cover fast-paced breaking stories plus the ability to report and edit insightful big-picture stories, explaining complex topics to readers around the world.

Have the writing and reporting ability to deliver deeper take-outs swiftly and cope with fast-paced breaking news
