Job Title: Reporter
Location: East or West Africa
- We are hiring two correspondents based in West and East Africa to join our team covering growth capital, private equity and debt investments in Africa.
- We’re looking for driven, creative and collaborative writers with a keen eye for a good story. While growth capital and private investment experience is not essential, it’s a bonus if you already understand the growth equity lifecycle and private sector development.

- Successful candidates will have a track record of publishing impactful stories that go beyond headlines to uncover the factors and trends that drive long-term economic growth in Africa.
- Reporting to the Editor, you will write engaging, in-depth and impactful stories about the fund managers, portfolio companies, institutional and commercial investors, and market factors shaping the direction and flow of private capital in Africa.
- As part of this role, you will connect with and be known to the key industry players, and you will build a community of readers who return to the Backable platform to read your stories.
- You may wish to take a sector-agnostic approach to your stories, or you could focus on 2-3 sectors and develop subject matter expertise.
- Your stories will cover the entire investment lifecycle, from fundraising and dealmaking to exits.
- You will be required to publish two stories each month.
- Minimum of two years of experience writing about Africa, emerging markets, and the private sector
- Fluency in English (spoken and written)
- Ability to write clear, concise and engaging copy, and ability to conduct research for a story.
