What does a Procurement Manager do?

Procurement Managers oversee the sourcing of raw materials, stock, goods and services. They negotiate the best possible prices for the organisation — then ensure that departmental managers and procurement staff follow procedures and purchasing controls.

As head of procurement you could be negotiating the price of raw materials with a supplier, checking the price and quality of stock against the supplier agreement, following up a credit for damaged goods with accounts, or delivering a cost savings proposal to the executive team.
