Hancock joined the Chinese Imperial Maritime Customs Service in 1874, and was appointed clerk at Chefoo on arriving in China in July at an early age of 27. He was transferred to the Inspectorate-General at Peking in 1875 to study Chinese. He was given various postings around the country and in 1881-1882 he became the Assistant in Charge at the Tamsui Customs in Taiwan. Other postings include Amoy with the same title. During 1885-1888, he was a professor at Customs College, Peking, where he probably taught Chinese. By 1905 he was acting Commissioner in Yochow until his resignation in 1908.
