Specialist recruitment firm add-victor, which works exclusively with candidates in elite British sports and the armed forces, officially launches this week.

The company will be placing candidates into companies from a range of UK industries. It says that around three-quarters of its sports candidates have at least an undergraduate university degree or higher, while its forces division is focused on commissioned officers, 95% of whom have attended university.London-based add-victor has a staff of seven, led by founders Tom Onions and Steve White-Cooper.

Onions is a former executive director at financial firm UBS with 11 years of City experience advising clients on mergers and acquisitions. His business partner White-Cooper is a former professional rugby player with England and Harlequins, who moved into recruitment after retiring from professional playing.

The company is working alongside military charity Walking with the Wounded and through this partnership it will waive all fees for placing those injured in the line of duty.
