Hancock will work as a corporate events project manager and will be responsible for managing a broad range of projects for clients across the UK and Europe, including Google, Pepsi and Deloitte.

She previously worked as event production manager at Awesome Events and has a range of experience in assisting experiential activities for brands such as Adidas.

Hancock is the ‘first of many new recruits’ in the company’s new expansion plan, following its recent office move to London Bridge to accommodate new hires.

Steve Perkins, head of corporate events at Chillisauce, said: "Our company is continuing to grow at a rapid pace and we’re looking to bring in new talent across both our project management and account teams in the next three months. We can only deliver amazing events with amazing people and we’re very pleased to have Laura on board as a part of that."

Hancock said: "Joining Chillisauce is extremely exciting for me as the company is renowned for delivering outstanding and creative event experiences for their clients. I’m ready to hit the ground running and look forward to being a part of their continued success."
