Procurement Jobs involve the buying of materials or services to enable a company to function. Many of the procurement requirements are already done by employees such as office managers but many companies have a procurement manager who is ultimately responsible for these purchases. His or her role is not so much about the small items but the big orders. Purchases may range from human resources, IT software, media buying and product marketing, logistics and business planning consultancy. Procurement officers and managers also make key decisions about places, times and strategies for buying materials.
Procurement officers will need to have an in depth understanding of IT systems. They need very good organising skills, leadership qualities and good with figures.
