EarthClaims Contract Loadout Inspector


Job Description:

EarthClaims LLC is the world’s preeminent animal welfare certification company, working in concert with the leading animal welfare standards program, the Global Animal Partnership and the Organic Plus Trust.  The contract loadout inspector is a trained and qualified professional whose primary job responsibilities include on-site audits of poultry operations during loadout to ensure animal welfare requirements are upheld.  During on-site visits, the contract inspector interacts with farmers, loading crews and transporters, conducts a review of records, and makes direct observations of the farm’s poultry loadout practices.


Inspectors prepare and submit written reports of their observations to EarthClaims for use in evaluating the eligibility of the poultry operation for certification. The contract inspector should reside in the southcentral or southeastern regions of Pennsylvania. As most loadout processes occur during late evening and overnight hours, the contract inspector must be consistently available during this period of time. The role requires excellent interpersonal, written, and oral communication skills including the ability to present complex material to various audiences. Professional, accurate, and impartial inspection work is critical to the delivery of quality verification services.


Required qualifications:

  • Two years of professional level experience in farming or animal production systems.
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a customer-oriented environment and deliver review and certification services with precision, impartiality, and professionalism.
  • Attention to detail, organization, communication skills, and timely completion of assignments.
  • Proven record of excellent communication skills – verbal and written.
  • Excellent time management skills and ability to prioritize work.
  • Ability to learn and understand complex program standards.
  • Proficiency in MS Office (MS Excel and Word, in particular).


Desired qualifications:

  • Experience working with agricultural producers.
  • Experience with turkeys and broilers preferred.
  • Residing in Southeastern or Southcentral Pennsylvania.
  • Experience in farming and food distribution.
  • Experience with verification systems.
  • Experience working in a regulatory environment.


Work requirements:

The Contract Inspector is a fully remote position. The inspector will attend scheduled loadouts at poultry operations throughout Pennsylvania to observe client procedures and confirm compliance to the certification tool. The inspector's schedule is determined by the client's processing schedule, with most inspections occurring during the overnight hours between 9pm to 5am. The ability to stand or walk for extensive periods of time is required.


Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Maintaining an understanding of current program standards and any clarifications provided by the standards setter.
  • Scheduling and conducting travel and inspections.
  • Completing and submitting report forms in a timely manner.
  • Providing further clarification to EarthClaims staff on areas in question.
  • Providing timely feedback to EarthClaims on questions specific to standards and client concerns.
  • Interacting with clients in a professional and confident manner.


Minimum Requirements:

  • Successful completion of minimum training and credential requirements specific to the certification for which they are assigned.
  • Knowledge of animal production systems.
  • Valid driver’s license.
