Deputy Global Crude Editor - ICIS - Bishopsgate, London

Reed Business Information
REE00BHM Requisition #


ICIS, a market-leading energy reporting service, is looking for a deputy editor for its global crude oil coverage and its daily World Crude Report (WCR).


Based out of ICIS’s new offices in Bishopsgate, The City, Central London, the successful candidate will assist the editor with planning, directing and managing content online and in the daily publication.


As global crude deputy editor you will edit energy news and analysis for ICIS publications while also writing analytical news and assessing wholesale prices across international crude oil markets. 


As deputy editor you will have a track record of filing original, accurate and high-quality copy to deadline, and an instinct for the strongest story angles.


The role will involve occasional international travel, including to ICIS offices in Houston and Singapore.


Commissioning and editing copy from the wider ICIS energy editorial team is integral to the role, while you will take on full editor responsibilities in the editor’s absence.


The deputy editor will be comfortable representing ICIS publicly, typically in the media, speaking at and chairing industry events and visiting customers.


Experience of overseeing a team of reporters is desirable, as is a record of adherence to compliance obligations as they relate to a price reporting agency.

  • Bachelors/Master’s degree in energy, journalism, finance, data science, economics or similar
  • A proven track-record in the energy industry as a journalist, market reporter, editor or analyst
  • Fluent written and spoken English and a high level of numerical accuracy
  • A proven ability to explain complex topics in a palatable form, distilling information that brings value to very well-informed readers with busy schedules
  • Experience commissioning and editing copy and building a network of contacts
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced deadline-driven environment
  • Previous experience of pricing commodity markets would be a strong advantage
