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.

E-Procurement Manager Jobs in Derbyshire

Situated in the East Midlands, Derbyshire is a county that shares a border with Greater Manchester, as well as Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Leicestershire.

Much of the Peak District is located within Derbyshire and just some of the towns in the region include Derby and Chesterfield, meaning there are many opportunities for those seeking E-Procurement Manager positions.

For most of its history, Derbyshire's economy has been based on agriculture, while the mining of natural resources such as coal, iron, lead and limestone were of particular importance during the Industrial Revolution. Of these, only the limestone quarries are still in operation.

The chocolate company Thorntons was established near Alfreton in 1911 - its headquarters are still based there today.

After the second world war, the first diesel-electric mainline passenger train was unveiled at the Locomotive Works in Derby and the British Rail Research Division was opened in 1964 with an aim to improve the country's train network. This eventually became the DeltaRail Group, which currently provides software and other technology for signalling and control systems.

JBC-Power Systems manufactures engines in the south of the county, Buxton Water is bottled here and Bombardier Transportation builds the rolling stock for the London Underground network.
