Oyster’s leader, running the business strategically and operationally.

Sasza Bandiera


Enthusiastic leader and empathetic listener. Advocate of Italian food. Street art collector.

For over 14 years, Sasza has been central to the explosive growth of the Oyster business. Starting as a trainee, before becoming a manager, then setting up divisions, hiring and training recruiters, rolling out a bespoke training academy and mentoring junior staff to management and director roles. Now a shareholder and running Oyster from an operational and strategic standpoint, Sasza knows every role in the business. Today Sasza is successfully building an aspirational business and brand that people want to work for, work with and be part of everyday.

What makes Sasza good at his job?

Taking a strategic view and always wondering what’s next: being able to spot business and people matters, visualise solutions and then implement them to the benefit of each individual and to the long-term growth of the business.

Being a good listener: Sasza is known for hearing people, understanding them, and supporting his team.

Sasza’s boundless energy and single-minded ambition: growing a business to a size that competes with the top 100 recruitment companies in the UK, and expanding abroad, all from a majority organic build (96% of the team started their careers here).

What is Sasza doing after work?

Spending quality time with his wife and two daughters. Enjoying cooking food from all over the world, using his Big green egg (though being Italian, Sasza believes Italian food to be the best in the world, closely followed by Asian and Lebanese foods). Travelling, perhaps to his favourite city Barcelona. Enjoying the morning, because Sasza never takes waking up for granted, with new days, new learnings, new challenges and new things all waiting to be accomplished.
