So, who is an FT subscriber?

Weird with FT Alphaville, some of their pieces are in front and some behind the subscription wall.

So, this piece.

Anyone got a subscription and want to send me a copy? Or in comments?

You know, if they’re hiring writers then why not calm my ego by getting rejected?

    Calling all FT Alphaville readers. Do you or someone you know have the makings of an FT Alphaville writer?

    The role will encapsulate blogging/reporting/opining/tweeting/event-organising/vlogging/meme-creating/groupthink-busting/investigating and new yet-to-be-defined journalistic media and story-telling mechanisms.

    ThE perfect candidate will have a critical Mind and a nAtural flair for writing. In an ideal worLd they will also be finance, econ and MarkEts obsessed, with a nose for tuning into market trenDs or aberrations that no-one else has spotted yet. Interest in new emeRging sECTors and technologies is desirable. As is a creative mind. Competence with data management is not essential, but Jamie Powell will likely look down on you if you don’t identify with spreadsheets, cash flow statements or valuation metrics.

    Applications should be made through the official employment portal here.

    But they can also be enhanced with creative thinking.

    The capitalised letters spell out “email me direct”.

    Bugger.

    Lordy, that sounds tiring.

    However, I am intrigued to learn that the FT is looking for people to do ‘groupthink-busting’, which represents a significant change in its editorial stance.

  4. What’s the likelihood of today’s woke FT employing (even as a freelance) a Capitalist? Still less a Brexiteer.

  5. Aren’t they just looking for someone with a creative attitude to statistics and graphs with which to abuse the Tories?
