A type of procurement commonly found in B2B, B2C and business-to-government situations, e-procurement is a sourcing method that relies on technology - particularly the internet and other networks.
There are many different types of e-procurement and positions in this field could involve tasks like sourcing, tendering, reverse auctioning and enterprise resource planning.
Those in e-procurement manager roles will generally be responsible for organising and implementing best practice strategies and ensuring all goods and services that are procured in this manner match the quality expectations. Other key performance indicators include ensuring each project adheres to the set budget and time scale.
In most cases, you will need to provide regular reports on the market for the goods and services you are responsible for procuring. On-going monitoring of the suppliers, prices and alternative options will also be necessary.
As an E-procurement Manager, you will also be in charge of a team, so tasks may include things like training employees, motivating your staff and dealing with issues that arise within your area of responsibility.
For those thinking of applying for roles as E-procurement Managers, a strong working knowledge of the various technologies is a must. You should have experience with the various e-procurement software packages, as well as other computing tasks - such as creating spreadsheets and using word processing programs.
Excellent organisation skills are vital and you should be confident in your ability to negotiate and communicate with a wide range of people - from suppliers through to company stakeholders and your own team.

Cheltenham is a historic spa town (sometimes called Cheltenham Spa) in Gloucestershire, about 7 miles (12 km) to the east of the county town, Gloucester. The town grew in popularity after a royal visit in the late 1700s, which brought its mineral waters national renown. It is known internationally as a site of festivals. There are the Literature, Jazz, Science and Music festivals to occupy the locals and bring in tourists, but most famous of all is the one simply called the Cheltenham Festival, a week-long National Hunt horse-racing event culminating in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
The town is a hotbed of high-tech industry, too, with electronics and aerospace playing their parts in the local economy. Tourism is and important wealth creator too. The west of the town is dominated by the UK’s national intelligence and eavesdropping centre, the GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters), an organisation that dates back to the First World War and has been at Cheltenham since 1951. During the Second World War it was located at the famous Bletchley Park.
The blend of hi-tech industry, an affluent populace and a thriving retail sector make Cheltenham a prime location for a variety of supply chain, logistics and procurement positions, and E-Procurement Manager jobs will appear in and around the time from time to time, although GCHQ will probably know about it before we do!
