Our Founder

“Justine takes pride in being able to truly recognise and represent chefs based on their talent and merit…”

Our Founder, Justine Murphy worked as a Private Chef on Superyachts for six years cooking for some of the world’s most influential people. Prior to this, her background in London was in restaurant management. She combined her expertise and her huge love of food and people, into creating her highly bespoke and successful chef agency mymuybueno Private Chefs, she has since expanded into recruitment of both interior crew and captains. By utilising her skills, experience and expertise,  she provides our clients with precisely what they are looking for, as to hand select the right candidate from our vast database.

Justine carefully matches private candidates worldwide, to royal families, dignitaries, high net worth families and individuals and also high profile celebrities. She works very closely with private and charter superyachts, households, private villas, luxury chalets and much more.

Justine dines often at Michelin star restaurants around the globe, and has a good friendship with many of the worlds best chefs, she is therefore exposed to a high standard of culinary expertise, which makes her knowledge both current and vast. This knowledge is an integral part of her selection process, having an eye for truly talented individuals. Working with chefs throughout the globe, she is always developing as a chef, she is always improving her own skills and techniques with new training. Justine takes pride in being able to truly recognise and represent chefs based on their talent and merit, as to represent their long term careers.

Justine is CEO of the mymuybueno Group, at the helm, managing the day to day running of the company and each division within, as well as being an author, podcast host and mother of two young boys. Justine often shares her experiences on her own Instagram . The mymuybueno Cookbook was published this year, you can order via  Amazon or all good bookshops. For a signed copy, you can order directly from us too.

Our Name

“It demonstrates that only by combining these factors, and them working in unison, can we truly deliver on our company promise…”

Our name comes from our love of the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca, where mymuybueno all began. Alongside her wealth of experience within the field in which we operate, it was this incredible island that inspired Justine’s vision and dream.

The ‘my’ is the English contribution, Justine being British herself; and it defines the personal touch we offer. The ‘muy bueno’ is the translation in Spanish of ‘very good’; in relation to good food. Justine merged them together as to establish our registered trademark and our unique name of ‘mymuybueno® ’.

This combination represents what our brand is all about. It demonstrates that only by combining these factors, and them working in unison, can we truly deliver on our company promise and philosophy of excellent quality with a personal experience.

We ask the Candidate to take time to read the following information and take a look at our draft Seafarers Employment Agreement (SEA), this is available on our website. It encompasses, as far as possible, the yacht’s obligations to you under MLC 2006. There is not a standard document for a SEA, however, the copy displayed here on our website is ideally what you should be looking to obtain in any SEA.

http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20121107103953/http://www.dft.gov.uk/mca/mcga07-home/workingatsea/mcga-healthandsafety/maritime_labour_convention_2006/mcga-ssh-mlc-title2/mcga-ds-ssh-mlc-sea.htm

SEA’s are required to comply with current applicable national laws and regulations and should include any Collective Bargaining Agreement that may apply to them.

Upon placement on a vessel through the means of recruitment via mymuybueno® Recruitment Ltd a copy of your SEA will be requested to keep on file for future reference.

Below is some more advice. It is recommended that you satisfy yourself of these items at or subsequent to the interview/s with any potential employer. You should be sure that all sections of the SEA are completed and acceptable to you.

MLC provides protection for such matters as the below, this is not an exhaustive list.
