Certification 2. Assess Lead Assessors

Lead Assessors

What is a Lead Assessor?

Lead Assessors have successfully completed an intensive Smart Assessor training and conducted an in-depth institutional client protection assessment with an already Lead Assessor.  As mentioned, an  assessment typically involves two Smart-Accredited Assessors on-site. Lead Assessors are responsible of conducting the fieldwork and reporting alongside one or several Support Assessors. Lead Assessors are independent from The Smart Campaign, but maintain their accreditation by completing the following set of responsibilities:

  • Good writing skills; experience with report creation
  • Familiarity with microfinance
  • Familiarity with the primary ratios and financial statistics used by MFIs for reporting purposes
  • Familiarity with indicator/performance measure design and testing preferred

Responsibilities of Lead Assessors

  • Conduct at least 1 in-depth assessment per year in order to maintain accreditation
  • Inform The Smart Campaign of any client protection assessments being conducted
  • Share all assessment reports with The Smart Campaign (kept confidential within The Smart Campaign)
