UK soap Hollyoaks is actively looking for Aussie storyliners, script editors and producers to join its ranks.

“Calling all Australian TV crew looking to relocate to the UK for a year. Hollyoaks is Channel 4’s award-winning flagship soap that entertains its loyal audience five nights a week with fast-paced, dramatic storylines, renowned for pushing boundaries,” it has advertised.

“In order to maintain the high standards of storytelling our audience has come to expect, we’re currently looking to expand our editorial team and are looking for experienced storyliners, script editors and producers, with a background in serial drama, to join us on a 12-month fixed term contract at our Liverpool offices.”

A spokesperson told Digital Spy: “Hollyoaks leaves no stone unturned in the search for new talent. As well as Lime Pictures’ regular initiatives to find fresh UK-based creatives, we welcome applicants from other countries. Australia in particular has a tradition of producing strong continuing drama.”

  1. This is exactly the sort of forward and innovative thinking that makes Hollyoaks the craziest soap in the world. Any Aussie scriptwriter would have a ball working on this show. And UKTV are throwing it away at 11.30am on weekdays, it should be moved to another channel- Arena perhaps – and given some more promotion to find a bigger audience in Australia
