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.

A West Midlands city that was historically part of Staffordshire, Wolverhampton is said to be named after King Wulfhere after he established an abbey in the seventh century. The city first became prominent as a market town around the 1100s and it was known for its wools and textiles, although it was not granted a royal charter for a market until 1258.
From the 16th century, Wolverhampton started manufacturing items like keys, locks, brassware and ironwork.
During the Industrial Revolution, the city grew significantly, as local mines produced vast quantities of coal, limestone and iron ore. Other goods manufactured in Wolverhampton during this time included steel and japanned ware.
Later, Wolves gained a reputation for producing motorcycles and cars, and the first vehicle to beat the 200 mph land speed record was built in the city.
These days, Wolverhampton is an excellent spot for those looking for E-Procurement Manager roles. It is mainly known for engineering works, with a specialty in aerospace and precision components - companies in these industries include HS Marston, MOOG and Goodrich. The service sector is also an important part of the city's economy and it is one of the largest retail centres in the region.
Birmingham Midshires is based in Wolverhampton, while Marston's operates a brewery in the city that produces Banks's, Hanson's and Mansfield beers. Other large businesses include Beatties, Chubb Locks, Tarmac and Carillion.
