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 Gloucester

Situated in the county town of Gloucestershire, Gloucester is located near the Welsh border and around 30 miles north-east of Bristol.

It's also situated on the River Severn, which eventually flows to the Bristol Channel and this, combined with an extensive canal network that was built in the 19th century, led the city to become an important place for international trade, particularly with Spain, France and Portugal.

Gloucester has long been an important site for banking and the financial industry, while manufacturing has also played a big part in the local economy. In fact, there are still factories and research and development facilities within the area for companies like BTR Permali, which makes water tanks and automotive mouldings, and Du Pont.

What's more, Gloucester is also known as a hub for the aerospace industry. Smiths Aerospace and Messier-Bugatti-Dowty are located here - the latter makes landing gear, braking systems and wheels.

Over the last 30 years, Gloucester has undergone significant regeneration, and it is now an ideal place for those seeking E-Procurement Manager opportunities.

Many of the old warehouses in the port area having been converted or replaced with more modern structures.
