Thomas Eccleston Air-Freight Co-ordinator

InterHigh alumni, Thomas Eccles, studied at InterHigh throughout high school before landing a job at an international freight forwarder, Kuehne + Nagel.

How long were you a student with InterHigh?

I studied at InterHigh from year 7 right through until year 11. After my GCSE’s in June, I moved out of my family home in Aviemore, Scotland and moved to Aberdeen at just 16 years of age.

What inspired you to move from your family home?

I wanted to start work. I searched for a job for about a month then managed to land myself one at Kuehne + Nagel, a worldwide known freight forwarder.

What is your position at Kuehne + Nagel?

With no exam results when applying for the job (as it was still only July), I managed to land a role as an Air-Freight Co-ordinator, doing the same job as everyone else and I’m still going strong.

How did InterHigh play a part in your new role?

Aged 16, I managed to move out and away from home. InterHigh played a huge part in that because I was not able to sit the exams locally. I had to travel to Aberdeen to sit them. If it weren’t for that, I may not have moved here.
