Jenkin was educated at the Dragon School in Oxford, Clifton College in Bristol and Jesus College at Cambridge. He became a barrister, called by the Middle Temple in 1952, and company director. He was a councillor on Hornsey Borough Council 1960–63.
Jenkin was the Conservative MP for Woodford from 1964 to 1974 (succeeding Sir Winston Churchill after his retirement) and, after constituency boundary changes, for Wanstead and Woodford from 1974 to 1987, and served as an Opposition spokesman on economic and trade affairs from 1965. He has been a member of the Bow Group since 1951. In January 1974 he became Minister for Energy just weeks before the Conservatives fell from office, and participated in many ways in the government of Margaret Thatcher. He served as Secretary of State for Social Services from 1979 to 1981, then as Secretary of State for Industry until 1983, and finally as Secretary of State for the Environment from 1983 to 1985. He was elevated to the House of Lords as a life peer with the title Baron Jenkin of Roding, of Wanstead and Woodford in Greater London in 1987.
Currently, Lord Jenkin of Roding is president of the Foundation for Science and Technology, and is a vice-president of the Local Government Association. His son, Bernard Jenkin, has also become a Member of Parliament.
Lord Jenkin's grandfather, Frewin Jenkin, was the first Professor of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford from 1908 in the newly created Department of Engineering Science, and is the namesake of the Jenkin Building at Oxford. Lord Jenkin is acting as Patron of the department's Centenary in 2008.
