ITV Job Vacancy: Script editor at Coronation Street

This just in from ITV Jobs.

Script Editor – Coronation Street
An opportunity to be part of the UK's number one soap.
As the success of Coronation Street continues to grow, we are looking for an experienced Script Editor to join our busy hard working team, ensuring that every single one of our episodes are top quality entertainment.

Your role will involve attending and contributing to Coronation Street’s story conferences. In script meetings, you will submit creative and structural editing notes to the Producer(s) advising of major continuity, technical and cast challenges. You will then pass edits notes to the writers in an open and creative manner. You will follow your scripts through all the stages of production from pre-production to editing dealing with various levels of personnel, therefore strong communication skills are a must.

You must demonstrate previous drama script editing experience. You should be focussed, be able to work under pressure and meet the deadlines of a rolling production schedule. You should be conscientious and have a creative but logical mind.

This role may facilitate long and unsocial working hours. This is an excellent opportunity to prove yourself in the nation’s top soap! Apply now! Closing date: Wednesday 10th July.

I'd be ideal. I could help with their verb-subject agreement, for example. Teaching them that in the sentence "ensuring that every single one of our episodes are top quality entertainment" the subject is singular (every single episode) and therefore IS top quality entertainment.

I'd be useful with vocabulary choices too. Like explaining that "facilitate long and unsocial hours" means to make them easier, which unless it makes the time FLY by, this job will not do. It may require them, mandate them, etc, but it's unlikely to facilitate them.

Finally, I can certainly pass edits along in an "open and creative manner." Some days I'd make them into paper planes and fly them across the office. Other days maybe water bombs, or in envelopes with suspicious white powder, just to add a little spice to the boring everyday. I could instigate "dress up" Fridays and deliver the edits dressed as a clown. The list is endless.

When do I start?
