Reuters is seeking a journalist with a proven track record of breaking news and reporting in-depth on central banking and the troubled commercial banking industry in India.
The successful candidate will work with another correspondent in a team of two in India and would also be expected to collaborate with colleagues across the region and around the world on broader banking and central banking stories.
The power struggle between the Reserve Bank of India and the central government may have waned with a leadership change at the central bank, but the RBI still has a minefield of issues to manoeuvre, while grappling with a banking sector that is still struggling to clean-
up its bad-loan overhang.
With the sustainability of India’s economic resurgence relying in large part on robust loan growth, the fate of the troubled Indian banking sector has major ramifications for broader financial policy and the fate of the Indian economy.
It will likely become a much more important part of the central bank’s work. From the workings of India’s new bankruptcy process, to a myriad of fraud cases and regulatory upheavals, the beat offers a rich array of stories.
Applicants should be able to show that they can build strong sources within the RBI and within the banking industry, and demonstrate an ability to conceptualize and deliver compelling stories that explain what’s happening inside India’s large financial institutions, and how their actions affect businesses, investors, taxpayers and consumers.
