Reuters is seeking an experienced and dynamic all-rounder for its busy Colombia bureau. Three years after a peace deal with the FARC rebels, violence is escalating once more in the Andean nation. Armed groups still control large pockets of territory, with illegal mining and cocaine production rife. President Ivan Duque’s government has yet to deliver the economic reforms awaited by large investors in the energy and mining sectors. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of impactful enterprise reporting, as well as the willingness to travel to report on a wide variety of stories from one of Latin America’s most diverse and complex countries. Knowledge of commodities/energy markets would be an advantage as well as familiarity with Spanish.
