Editor wanted for researchers' London office
Friday 8 March 2019
I wrote twice in The Baron about Blue Heron Research Partners, where I work with a half dozen former Reuters colleagues and other journalists and am sharing an update. We recently opened a London office and are seeking an editor or junior editor full-time to start work in April.
As you can see at www.blueheronrp.com, we are a growing independent research firm with experienced former journalists doing qualitative due diligence interviews about companies, senior executives and industry sectors. Our clients are institutional investors, and we do deep-dive interviews with former colleagues, competitors and customers to gain a better understanding of a subject's personality, approach to leadership and impact on a team or company culture.
As an example of our work cycle, I do about 370-400 interviews a year with senior executives around the world in virtually every type of business and industry. Most calls are recorded and transcribed, then edited to capture top-line bullet points in a tight summary above the full transcript. The company is young and growing, offering a "sweet spot" for reporting, editing and interviewing skills. All interviews are private and none of our research is published. You'll see from our team a cross-section of journalists from major news and financial research firms, a reasonable gauge for prospective applicants for the nature of our firm.
If it is not too much to ask, would you share it with your networks and help us recruit the best candidate?
Let me know if you have further questions at email@example.com, and thank you in advance. ■
