Leah Forbes and Dora Gordos will fill the roles of event administrator and event-coordinator respectively.

Gordos was previously a floor manager at The Grand Connaught Rooms while Forbes was an events assistant at Emap

Church House general manager Robin Parker said: "With our increased focus on all aspects of the events market we expect to have a very busy year. Both of the new recruits have a background in events and we expect them to continue Church House’s tradition of providing top level service to all our clients and their delegates."

The new roles have been created in response to strong results for year ending May 2011 with more than a 40% increase in corporate sector business.

The gains were put down to space being freed up following the cancellation of various public sector events after government cuts.

Church House recently held its 21st birthday celebrations with corporate event planners from the BBC, Dyson Bell and EDF.
