After a four-step interview process, the new hires will complete a month-long training programme run by head of sales Raj Patel, before reporting to their team managers to meet key sales targets expected in 2016. Chillisauce, which last year doubled its office space and relocated to London Bridge, has marked 2015 as its 14th year of consecutive growth. 

Patel, who lead the recruitment drive, said: "We have hired a number of enthusiastic, driven individuals based on their attitude and personal attributes that represent the Chillisauce culture and community. Above all else, we look for people with strong communication skills and a desire to delight customers.

"As we work towards developing brand awareness in 2016, we know that we will need a strong, dedicated sales team behind us, with the right skills and knowledge to deliver something extraordinary to our customers. A lot of time and effort has gone into finding the right people."
