FT Special Reports Desk by James Nickerson

Tuesday 24 September 2013

One of the reasons the Financial Times is the leading financial newspaper is because it breaks new stories combined with second-to-none analysis. Another reason why it stands out to me is because it is consistently accurate and does not deal in conjecture.

My experience at the FT showed that this commitment to quality journalism exists at all levels of the newspaper, from the morning conference and across all desks and all platforms.

An internship with the FT offers an insight into how a daily newspaper is produced in print and online dealing with a range of topics. The team in which I worked offered me fantastic guidance and opportunities, allowing me to learn a vast space in a short amount of time – as well as working in a welcoming and fun environment!
