As part of the newly created role, Chugh will lead the growth of the Hire Space team and help to build and expand the business. The startup company, which works closely with event planners, is set to make around 25 new hires in the next six months. Chugh will focus on talent acquisition, recruitment strategy, performance management and development of existing team members, alongside strengthening internal HR and organisational structures.

Bringing more than ten years’ experience in human resources to the team, her most recent role was at Plan International where she was part of the Business Operating Model-Change Programme.

Edward Poland, COO at Hire Space, said: "We have really ambitious growth plans for the next year and we felt that Richa shared Hire Space’s entrepreneurial spirit and drive. She will be pivotal in consolidating our brand values to attract and retain the best talent while developing the fantastic team we already have in place and ultimately help us achieve our goals."

Commenting on her appointment, Richa said: "In today's dynamic and ever-evolving market the most critical aspect for any business is to constantly innovate and grow. This can only be done if the business has the ability to attract, engage and retain the right people to help realise the future, and I hope to achieve this for Hire Space. It’s a very exciting time to be joining the company and I’m looking forward to working on diverse projects and be part of its growth story."
