Correspondent, Pakistan

Thomson Reuters
Full time Full day
Reuters is looking for a correspondent with a penchant for breaking news and developing stories as part of the Pakistan team. The position, based in the financial capital, Karachi, will primarily involve covering economic news, but candidates should have the versatility to work on politics and general news – particularly on developments important to an international audience. This will be a remote position, with the successful candidate working from home.

Pakistan is a fascinating, and often underreported, economics story. This will be an exciting and challenging opportunity to work on a wide array of issues, including monetary and fiscal policy, the energy and commodities market, as well as the country’s vibrant and burgeoning startup scene. The challenges faced by Pakistan’s economy and its business community will be in particular focus as well as the government’s attempts to address these challenges.

The candidate will also be expected, from time to time, to cover developing political and general news stories, and work with freelancers in other areas of the country, such as Balochistan. Interest in climate and its impact on the economy will be a bonus.

The person selected will have strong news judgment and should be able to help drive business and economics coverage in Pakistan. We are looking for someone with enthusiasm for developing sources and a flair for writing.

Speed in covering breaking news, particularly on the economy, is of particular importance, as is the drive to produce exclusive news. You must have attention to detail and the ability to deliver wide-ranging stories explaining complex issues to readers around the world.

Main responsibilities:

Write and report to quickly provide detailed information and deal with breaking news.

Discuss and develop initiative stories with the bureau chief.

Develop sources to deliver news in each area of the archive.

Work closely with colleagues in visuals to present multimedia stories.


At least 5 years in journalism

Advanced command of oral and written English. Written and spoken command of Urdu is a must.

Experience covering business and economics including commodities

Enthusiasm, drive and ability to think outside the box

Ability to produce insightful and impactful business journalism that illuminates complex issues

Please note, the deadline for applications is Monday 31st October 2022.
