Hire a Procurement Officer

 

Procurement officers are in charge of purchasing supplies and materials for an organization at competitive prices. They evaluate products, implement purchase plans, and compare prices. An essential part of their role is to build a positive relationship with vendors to negotiate favorable deals and re-evaluate existing contracts. The goal is to ensure that the purchases are cost-efficient and of high quality, whether they be materials for use or resale. Many businesses hire procurement officers, from small companies to multinational organizations with established retail chains. Procurement officers execute their duties independently, but they usually work in a team setting in an office environment. Occasional travel is often required to check inventory supplies. As far as compensation is concerned, an entry-level procurement officer can expect to earn an average total salary of $48,000 per year. The pay scale can vary based on experience and expertise, with the top 10% making about $98,000 annually. An expert procurement officer has a good chance of getting promoted to the role of a procurement manager.

 

Duties and deliverables

 

While a procurement officer's daily responsibilities are determined by the place of work, there are many core tasks associated with the role that are common across organizations. Commonly these duties include initiating business partnerships, managing inventory, checking payments, comparing prices, and training new employees. They are in charge of improving company effectiveness by working with suppliers and finding ways to reduce expenses. The officers are responsible for researching products and ensuring that procured products are delivered on time. All purchases they make should be in line with company standards. Essentially, they should be able to gauge the purchase levels to ensure consistent resource availability and performance. In doing so, they make sure that the goods procured meet the company's requirements and avoid shortages. Additionally, they should be able to follow and enforce the company's procurement policies and procedures. Most importantly, they should review the financial goals and provide metrics to understand and advise on initiatives and cost structure. They are also in charge of keeping procurement records for analysis and future purchases. 

 

Qualifications and required skill sets

 

A bachelor's degree in business or a related field is generally preferred, with at least three years of relevant experience. Proficiency in Microsoft Office and purchasing software is beneficial. Those looking to work in this field have to demonstrate exceptional analytical thinking, time management, and organizational skills. They must work well in a team and make a good impression on others. Knowledge of relevant laws on supplies, equipment, services, and materials are imperative for success. A good understanding of vendor sourcing practices (including researching, evaluating, and liaising with vendors) is a must. An ideal candidate must have strong communication, negotiation, and contracting skills. Applicants who are goal-oriented with multitasking and prioritizing abilities can thrive as a procurement officer.
