Job Vacancy: Script Editor, Coronation Street

Script Editor, Coronation Street Manchester

​Fancy working on our world famous cobbles?

How would you like to work with our team of top writers to help craft the next brilliant flight of fancy from Mary Taylor or the next zinger for deadpan David? And what about helping to shape the next heart-stopping story for this BAFTA-winning stalwart of British TV?

Coronation Street is even bigger and better than ever and this year we are moving to 6 Episodes so we are looking for a Script Editor to join our busy hard working editorial team who ensure that every single one of our episodes is top-drawer telly.

Your role will involve attending and contributing to story conferences. In script meetings, you will submit creative and structural notes to the Producer(s), advising of major continuity, technical and cast challenges and finding ways to overcome them. You will then work with the writers, in an open and creative manner, to help them implement these notes. You will follow your scripts through all the stages of production, from pre-production to editing, dealing with various levels of personnel including researchers, directors and cast - so 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 require working long and unsocial hours - but it’s an excellent opportunity to prove yourself in the nation’s top soap, working with the best writers and characters in the medium.

If you’re up for the challenge, in a role where no two days are ever the same, apply now!

“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”

Apply now! Closing date: 30th January 2017
