Tactical Report is a leader of Strategic and Market Intelligence in the Middle East & North Africa region since 2004 with a particular focus on the defense and energy industries.

Our reporters operate based on human intelligence (HUMINT), by means of interpersonal contact, as opposed to the more technical intelligence gathering techniques such as Open Source Intelligence (OSINT).

High-caliber reporters are the lifeblood of our business, and we firmly believe in rewarding those reporters' performance. Our audience is full of influential people who are dependent on key information to base their decisions on.

The great British newspaper publisher Lord Northcliffe once said: “News is what somebody, somewhere wants to suppress; all the rest is advertising.”

We’ll trust you to:

– Unearth previously unknown information about key people, situations, and deals that affect the defense and/or energy industries.

– Keep and cultivate relationships with trusted key sources inside and around the relevant public sector

– Contribute to a great, welcoming team culture with high standards of journalism

To be successful in this role, you’ll need to have:

– Previous experience in the defense and/or energy industry

– A thirst for getting scoops

– Ability to source deeply across multiple levels and close to decision-making circles

– Strong interpersonal skills to build relationships with sources

– Emotional intelligence to be a great teammate and person

– Intense curiosity and desire to be constantly learning and growing

– Confident communication with strong writing skills

– Critical thinking to uncover the true from the fake

Your responsibilities include but are not limited to:

– Keep across the news agenda to identify any potential stories

– Work with little-to-no supervision, conducting your own research and finding leads on potential stories

– Build relationships with people who may offer sources of information

– Collect data from a variety of credible confidential sources

– Use all your findings to prepare clean, concise and factual articles

– Respond to requests for information from our editors and turn them into fact-based information reports in an engaging and timely manner.

– As well as accumulating information, you must also gather supporting evidence in case your report is challenged

– Double-check everything you do, from the information you gather to the way you write your final report

Required skills:

– Minimum of 2 years’ working experience as a journalist or reporter in the Defense & Security and/or Energy sector, particularly in Oil & Gas

– Good reporting and verbal communication skills with a great attention to details

– Adequate experience with writing and editing tools (e.g., Microsoft Word)

– Capable of maintaining an ethical and objective standard in reporting

– Ability to meet deadlines and accurately fact-check information

– Arabic is a must, English is a bonus
