Full Job Description

Spectrum Field Services is seeking contract inspectors to meet with contacts at commercial properties, and walk the property looking for damage and other issues. Independent contractors receive a 1099 tax form each year and are responsible for their own taxes. Spectrum is one of the pioneers in the field service industry and we are committed to retaining that reputation. Spectrum’s client base includes both high-profile, high-volume firms and the smaller, more boutique firms and organizations. Being able to serve all types of clients results from Spectrum’s long-term stability and our adaptability to the needs of every individual client. This level of service solidifies Spectrum’s reputation as a field services industry leader.
