About the Smart Campaign:
The Smart Campaign works globally to create an environment in which financial services are delivered safely and responsibly to low-income clients. As the world’s first financial consumer protection standard, the Campaign maintains a rigorous certification program, elevates the client voice, and convenes partners to effect change at the national level. Nearly 100 financial institutions, collectively serving more than 41 million people, have been certified for adhering to the Campaign’s industry-accepted consumer protection standards.
The Smart Campaign seeks a Marketing and Community Outreach Manager to build upon its positioning as a recognized leader in financial consumer protection for low-income clients, leverage the Campaign’s outstanding reputation, and expand our work in a constantly evolving industry including financial technology (FinTech).
The Marketing and Community Outreach Manager will play an instrumental role in developing a global communications strategy and base of supporters extending beyond the microfinance industry to raise awareness about client protection and promote the client protection principles. He/she will help to identify emerging consumer protection risks and mitigation strategies, and build the commitment and capacity of relevant stakeholders, with a focus on supporting client protection standards for financial service providers. This person will work with the Smart Campaign Director to ensure the success of the Smart Campaign while also providing support to junior staff and consultants as needed.
