E-procurement Manager jobs

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.

The skills required

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.
