Writer & Data Analyst - Artemis.bm

Brighton & Hove

Closing date: 08/02/2018

We own and run two online business-to-business publications focused on the reinsurance industry. We strive to provide relevant and thoughtful information, news and analysis, as well as some data services, to industry participants.


Reinsurance News (www.reinsurancene.ws) is a growing publication focused on the traditional reinsurance marketplace. With a readership that is growing quickly online, an email list of 7,500 who receive a daily bulletin and an opportunity for rapid growth, this is becoming a core platform for the business despite only being one year old.


Artemis.bm (www.artemis.bm) is a world leading publishing, events, analysis, news, insight and data business in a growing segment of the global reinsurance and risk transfer market. Focused on a niche area in re/insurance where the capital markets are increasingly providing capital to back alternative reinsurance and risk transfer structures.


At the heart of the business is news, analysis and blogging, with opinion and personality, currently publishing on average 15 articles per-day.


We also operate data services, including an extensive Deal Directory of catastrophe bond and insurance-linked securitization transactions on Artemis.


Artemis.bm also publishes market reports and analysis, typically backed by sponsorship and advertising, as well as facilitating, hosting and publishing executive roundtables, dinners, briefings, webinars and conferences.


Both publications are funded by advertising, sponsorship, and partnerships, as well as through commercial events and conferences.

Job Description:

Description

As the business grows we are looking for a junior level writer and data analyst to come onboard and help us to expand.


Some experience in publishing or content is necessary, while an interest or understanding of insurance and reinsurance would be useful but not essential, and wider finance and broader capital market journalism, editorial and analysis experience or interest will also be considered.


Candidates should be ambitious, be looking to create a career for themselves and want to help build a world-leading publishing and events business.


Applicants will be expected to write articles from press releases, as well as work with data to assist in the production of our reports. Other content related tasks will also be required.


We’re open to applicants with specific journalism experience, but also to those without but with relevant experience in content, online business or data analysis.


Senior applicants are also welcomed and we can adjust the role to suit.

Responsibilities


The successful candidate will in time be producing around two or three stories per day for the website, as well as contributing to market reports and analysis, including data work. Strong emphasis will be placed on consistently producing high-quality content, analytical, trend- or data-driven articles. As well as accuracy in work where data is concerned.


Applicants should be extremely literate and numerate. Learning will be required to get up to speed in reinsurance, risk transfer and related concepts. We will expect you to be able to learn fast and get writing content as quickly as possible.


More senior applicants must have a news focus and prior industry experience and contacts in reinsurance and the ILS market.


Topics to be covered range from press releases, industry trends, losses, market analysis, investment mandates, interviews, people moves and investment strategies. The successful candidate will be expected not just to report on these matters, but to also dig deeper into what is driving them and what is likely to drive them in the future.


Our publications are online businesses and so some demonstrable understanding of writing for the web, SEO, online best practice, social media and digital journalism are preferred.


There will also be an opportunity to be involved in developing new products for Artemis.bm, as well as assisting with events and conferences.

Additional tasks may include:

  • Sourcing content for articles.
  • Researching industry trends.
  • Writing content for the website.
  • Updating various sections of the website.
  • Assisting with new website product development.
