Want to work for a specialist news agency with a strong reputation in a fast growing market?

Carbon Pulse is an online, subscription-based service dedicated to providing in-depth news and intelligence about carbon pricing initiatives and climate change policies around the world. Founded in 2015, with offices in the UK and China and a growing number of reporters dotted around the world, our unrivalled coverage focuses mainly on emissions trading markets and other methods of using taxes and market-based mechanisms to cut greenhouse gas output.

The ideal candidate will be a keen self-starter with an innovative and analytical mind, able to quickly, comprehensively, and accurately report on breaking stories while identifying larger market trends and chasing initiative stories.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

This role will cover North and South American environmental markets, GHG pricing initiatives, and government and corporate climate policy, with a specific focus on:

You will be tasked with covering climate change policy on international, national/federal, state/provincial, corporate, and sometimes municipal levels.

You will be responsible for covering breaking news, as well as for writing weekly and sometimes ad-hoc market reports on some of the above markets - always writing from an unbiased and balanced perspective. You will also be required to chase emerging or compelling stories, conduct interviews and develop wider, in-depth analysis pieces based on larger issues or identified trends.

You will also be asked to edit your colleagues’ copy, assist with the daily newsletter, and contribute in other areas including sales, marketing, and conference planning.

REQUIREMENTS:

To apply, email your resume, a cover letter and a sample article of 300-500 words to admin@carbon-pulse.com. The sample article can be either a piece of your previous work or a story reporting on a recent trend or historical event related to the carbon markets (eg. a policy development, an auction result, etc.)

Deadline: Jan. 21, though we will likely start interviews before this date. Only candidates that are being considered will be contacted for Skype interviews.
