So what does a purchasing and procurement job involve? Jobs in purchasing and procurement can be varied and exciting, and whilst differences exit according to the industry and sector you enter, there are some general responsibilities that you will likely be expected to fulfil.

  • Sourcing suppliers and handing negotiations
  • Reviewing products/services/stock
  • Ensuring deliveries are on time and to required standards
  • Using sales reports to make future predictions

Purchasing and procurement job prospects are good, both in terms of an increase in new positions being formed and opportunities to advance. The dynamics of the industry are expected to change as e-procurement systems become more popular with purchasing and procurement employers, meaning future positions may focus on using the information these e-procurement systems will provide, as well as the need for third-party procurement specialists familiar with these systems.

Entry-level purchasing and procurement jobs, such as purchasing assistant and assistant buyer tend to pay around £20,000, with this rising slightly for graduates. Purchasing officer positions with purchasing and procurement employers pay around £28,000, with this moving to anything from £46,000 upwards for purchasing manager and senior professionals.

If you show promise, long-term career prospects are good, with clear and often lucrative routes of progression available.

You may need to travel often, including overseas and trade shows.
