The Financial Times (FT) is hiring a west Africa Correspondent. The ideal candidate must be experienced in business journalism.
While producing compelling journalism about Nigeria, the West Africa Correspondent will also report widely from a region spanning Mauritania to Gabon including Ghana, Senegal and Ivory Coast.
The successful candidate will explore themes ranging from energy transition and climate change to rising debt burdens and the fragile state of democracy; from youth unemployment to population growth; and from economic transformation to the growing influence of China and Russia.
A working knowledge of French would be a big advantage, as well as that of a west African language or Mandarin.
