Suna Yokes

After graduating in 2015 (MSci Human Geography), Suna pursued a career in television production.

As an Office and Production Runner for Studio Lambert, the award-winning company behind much-loved TV shows including Gogglebox, The Secret Millionaire and Undercover Boss, my job can be quite varied.

“One of the most valuable things I learnt at the University of Birminhgham was that it does not necessarily matter if your degree does not directly apply to the area you aspire to work in.”

I ensure production teams have the correct equipment and supplies, and help them out on filming days. I sometimes get to meet ordinary people with interesting stories, who make these factual entertainment shows so successful. I even got to be an extra in one of Studio Lambert's new series, Full Body Fixers; look out for my acting debut!
