E-Procurement Manager - Surrey

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.

E-Procurement Manager Jobs in Surrey

Located in the South East of England, Surrey shares borders with Kent, East and West Sussex, Hampshire and Berkshire, as well as Greater London, making it one of the Home Counties.

There are many large towns and villages in Surrey - such as Woking, Guildford, Ewell, Epsom and Redhill - making it a suitable choice for those seeking E-Procurement Manager opportunities. What's more, with much of the county being considered part of the London commuter belt, it's also a good location for those who want to work in the capital but live away from the city.

For much of Surrey's modern history, the region has been known for paper manufacturing and gunpowder. However, these were in steep decline by the early 20th century and new industries took over, such as bicycle and car manufacture.

The McLaren Group, one of the best-known names in automotives, is based here. It has manufacturing and administration facilities in Woking and has also opened a technology centre for research and development.

Some of the region's other top employers include engineering firm WS Atkins, Philips Electronics, Colgate-Palmolive and Ericsson. There's also a large Alexander Dennis factory in the area, which manufactures chassis for buses and fire engines.
