I wonder if they sign a contract at some point that they have a job there as long as they want it, because soap work isn't supposed to be a steady job.

My friend knows someone who worked on Hollyoaks, she was a regular, but was given fairly short notice that they were writing her out, for no other reason than they had no more storylines for her - yet Roache, Kirkbride and Woodyatt are largey part of the furniture in their soaps, yet you can't see them going anywhere.
There's a hierarchy when it comes to soap characters. The main characters don't run the risk of getting written out that easily, the regulars are more at risk. And those with a little line here and there are easily replaced.
