Script Editor - Emmerdale, 12 Month Fixed Term Contract
Leeds


It's never quiet in the village.

Whether it’s the sound of the White's deadly car crash, Ross' heartbreaking journey or the war erupting between the Dingle and Tate families Emmerdale has been making a lot of noise. As the success of Emmerdale continues to grow, we are looking for experienced Script Editors to join our busy, hard-working team, ensuring that every single one of our episodes are top quality, gold standard entertainment.

Your role will involve attending and contributing to Emmerdale’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 edit notes to the writers in an open and creative manner, working with them to get the very best out of each episode. 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. The role may require long and unsocial working hours.

This is an excellent opportunity to prove yourself in one of the nation’s top soaps and see your ideas on screen every weeknight. Emmerdale commissions in excess of 322 episodes per year and thus require long and unsociable hours. If you have what it takes and want the opportunity to work on one of the nation’s top soaps, apply now! 

We continue to work hard to make meaningful changes to make sure ITV continues to welcome diversity, celebrate individuality and support an inclusive working environment.

Closing date for applications: 15th July 2018
