Beedles has landed the position of story consultant at the Channel 4 show and began work at the programme's base in Liverpool yesterday (March 26).
The appointment comes as part of a handful of behind-the-scenes changes at Hollyoaks.
Beedles headed up the storyline team at EastEnders for over a year, but departed her Walford role earlier this month.
She also worked as Emmerdale's series producer between 2005 and 2008, which was one of the ITV1 show's most successful eras.
Meanwhile, Digital Spy can also confirm that Gareth Lemon has returned to Hollyoaks as script producer after more than two years as senior script editor at Coronation Street. He previously worked in the script department at Hollyoaks between 2003 and 2009.
Finally, Hollyoaks' script editor Kate Hall has been promoted to the post of series editor.
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4 with a first look screening at 7pm on E4.
