Position description

Reuters, the news and media division of Thomson Reuters, is the world’s largest international multimedia news provider reaching more than one billion people every day. Reuters provides trusted business, financial, national, and international news to professionals via Thomson Reuters desktops, the world's media organizations, and directly to consumers at Reuters.com.

Reuters is looking for an enterprising, French-speaking journalist with a track record of producing deeply-reported, exclusive stories to join our team covering Canada from our Toronto bureau.  

The successful candidate should be a self-starter who can identify hot topics, do the reporting and execute top caliber work. They must be a team player and be able to collaborate closely with specialist beat reporters and editors. The correspondent will be given the time and space to focus on deeply reported stories but will be expected to pitch in to cover real-time news when the need arises.

The candidate will break news on a wide-range of issues facing Canada, from the opioid crisis to the surge in refugees/issues affecting immigrants.  S/he will be able to write with authority, providing vital context on Canadian news to make it compelling to financial clients and general news readers around the globe.

Candidate should be comfortable working on deep-dive enterprise pieces that allow Reuters to set the agenda on coverage of important Canadian issues, as well as sending headlines and covering quick daily spot news stories.

Qualifications:

  • Minimum 5 years experience working as a reporter
  • Proven record of breaking news, including breaking stories through computer-assisted reporting
  • Team player
  • Experience and passion for using multimedia to tell stories
  • French language fluency

Thomson Reuters provides professionals with the intelligence, technology and human expertise they need to find trusted answers. We enable professionals in the financial and risk, legal, tax and accounting, and media markets to make the decisions that matter most, all powered by the world's most trusted news organization.
