Data Journalist – Insurance Insider


Insurance Insider is looking for a Data Journalist to join its growing data and visual journalism team in London.


Insurance Insider is focused on providing unrivalled market intelligence and real-time insight to senior professionals in the insurance sector. Our award-winning journalists have deep knowledge of a complex market that is regularly impacted by phenomena as diverse as global warfare, cyberterrorism and climate change.


About the role


This role will support our Senior Data Journalist in expanding the scope of the group’s data-focused products, and in making news coverage and analysis across our titles Insurance Insider, Trading Risk and Inside P&C even richer through data visualisation.


In this role, the Data Journalist will:

  • assist with the day-to-day management of Insurance Insider’s online data products and the underlying structured datasets
  • source, clean and analyse data to produce original stories and create compelling visualisations
  • work with other reporters to prepare relevant data and visualisations for their stories
  • pitch new ideas for data-led work to support our existing areas of coverage

The role is suitable for recent graduates who are ambitious and willing to learn, but we will also consider applicants with existing professional data journalism experience.


About the candidate


A successful candidate will:


  • be comfortable performing basic analysis of quantitative data, as well as communicating the results clearly and succinctly in writing
  • possess strong knowledge of spreadsheet-editing tools such as Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets
  • have demonstrable experience of using data visualisation to tell effective stories
  • be capable of operating at speed in an environment where accuracy is essential
  • have a desire to work as part of a cohesive team focused on delivering first-class journalism


Direct experience of writing about insurance is not expected; an understanding of basic financial concepts and metrics is preferred, but not essential.


About Insurance Insider


Insurance Insider is the fastest-growing unit within B2B publishing business Delinian (formerly part of Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC).


We are a supportive and ambitious team of experienced, passionate reporters and editors, spanning London and New York.
