Coronation Street job vacancy: Senior Script Editor

Senior Script Editor - Coronation Street

Coronation Street is even bigger and better than ever and we are moving to 6 Episodes next year too so we are looking for an experienced Senior Script Editor to join our busy hard working team, ensuring that every single one of our episodes are absolute top quality entertainment.

Your role will involve attending and contributing to Coronation Streets story conferences, reading submitted scripts and offering creative and structural editing notes to the Producer warning of major continuity, technical, schedule and cast issues. We will look to you to lead / contribute in first draft script meetings, in line with the Producers notes/comments and work with script writers in editing and rewriting scripts as required.

You will attend Director’s meetings, as required, with detailed script, story and continuity notes, receive and circulate to Script Supervisors all script rewrites and amendments, and inform the Producer(s) of any implications for later scripts. 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 continuing drama script editing experience with sound editorial judgement and an eye for detail with the ability to generate creative ideas whilst displaying an awareness of a rolling production schedule.

You should be conscientious and have a creative but logical mind. Coronation Street is moving to a 6 Episode, 52 week commission and as such may facilitate long and unsocial working hours.

This is an excellent opportunity to prove yourself in one of the nation’s top soaps!

Our people are our greatest asset and, as an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds to work both in front of and behind the cameras.

"ITV, where creativity, diversity and collaboration put us right at the heart of popular culture"

Closing date: 21st November 2016. All details at

I think they could do with an army of these, continuity is not a strong point.
