Hammond, 61, was named chancellor of the exchequer by May shortly after she took over as prime minister almost a year ago, in the wake of Britain's decision to leave the European Union.
With 649 of 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 318 seats and Labour 261 followed by the pro-independence Scottish National Party on 34.
May has said that she will begin to form her government, with the support of the DUP (Democratic Unionists Party). The tabloid Sun said succinctly: "She's had her chips".
Now, though, the political landscape of the United Kingdom and the country's path toward leaving the European Union seem more unclear than ever.
Corbyn's newly energized Labour Party officially backs Brexit - since voters endorsed it in a referendum a year ago - but many important figures in the party advocate a much "softer" approach, and their views now may now carry sway.
Instead, the result has sown confusion and division in British ranks, just days before negotiations are due to start on June 19.
May's gamble that she could capitalise on Britons' desire to quit the European Union (EU) and perceived weakness in the opposition Labour Party backfired on Thursday as voters stripped her of her parliamentary majority.
"No further appointments will be made this evening", May's office said today. She was listening only to a small group of aides, and they failed to get her out and interacting with crowds. "According to the latest data, the conservatives finally reached 42.4 percent of the votes and the Labor Party 39.9, a short difference of just over two points in front of which Corbyn said that 'I think that is enough for May leave 'after losing" seats, votes, support and trust.
Former Conservative minister Anna Soubry added that the premier "is in a very hard place. she now has to obviously consider her position".
"We don't know when Brexit talks start". We know when they must end.
"Do your best to avoid a "no deal" as result of "no negotiations", Donald Tusk, leader of the EU's ruling council, wrote in a tweet.

The result is "exactly the opposite of why she held the election and she then has to go and negotiate Brexit in that weakened position", said Professor Tony Travers of the London School of Economics university. Well, May is going to attempt to form an agreement with the 10 MPs that were elected from the Democratic Unionist Party, or DUP. The pro-Brexit Gove was appointed Environment Secretary.
But they are anxious about what will happen to the border of Northern Ireland, because it's the only part of the United Kingdom which shares a land border with a country that's part of the European Union - the Republic of Ireland.
But with her authority diminished, May risks facing more opposition to her Brexit plans from both inside and outside her Conservative Party, and some colleagues may be lining up to replace her. The DUP said only that it would enter talks.
"I can still be prime minister", Corbyn said.
"It is not the outcome any of us would have wanted in the Conservative Party".
Northern Ireland's frontier with the Republic of Ireland will be the UK's only land border with the European Union after Brexit. Barnier dismissed the suggestion of postponing the negotiations and said such a delay would only prompt further instability.
