About Phil Jenkins – 300 Co-founder

I’ve got a Computer Science Masters degree so I’m fluent in ‘geek’ but I’m a creative marketer too. ‘Creative’ has to be one of the most over-used words, so why should you believe me?

Well, for one I’ve been advising companies and delivering creative digital strategies that really work for over 25 years.

As digital marketing director at Robert Walters Group I implemented Workplace by Facebook for three global brands and over 4000 staff, an enterprise-level Adobe content management system, launched over 200 websites in 10 languages across 28 countries, created award-winning apps and was named in the global top 3 #mostsociallyengaged recruitment company on LinkedIn, three years running.

One of my favourite projects solved the problem of Japanese job seekers being nervous about interviewing at Western companies. I pitched the idea of a Manga style interview guide to Robert Walters’ Japan business.

I secured the funding, created a unique user interface, delivered great content and launched it to market. It was named one of the Telegraph’s top apps – in good company with the Economist, BBC News, and Flipboard.

I have a unique ability to solve business problems through creative digital communication. I see to the heart of an issue and help others do the same. It’s proved to be my most valuable asset. Now I work with a range of clients from Finsbury Food Group, SRM and Samaritans.
