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 excellent journalist for the role of Politics Editor in our Washington bureau. The editor will take on some of the biggest stories in the world as President Donald Trump seeks to overhaul U.S. taxes, healthcare, regulations, trade deals, immigration policies and foreign relations even as he faces an investigation into his campaign team’s Russia ties. 

The populist real estate billionaire has already dramatically changed politics and U.S. relationships with allies and rivals across the world. The Russia investigation, power struggles inside the White House, and Trump’s relations with lawmakers, business executives and world leaders will all determine whether he succeeds or fails. We are looking for someone who understands politics and business, and can work well with reporters to drive our daily news coverage and enterprise reporting on these important stories.


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.
