A great Procurement Specialist should have computer and technical skills to effectively conduct research on potential suppliers and to input important product information into the procurement software system. Since they're regularly comparing and evaluating costs on certain products, it's also best for the ideal Procurement Specialist to be great mathematics and handle finances well.
Negotiation skills are also needed for Procurement Specialists to secure the best quality products with suppliers at reasonable prices. Strong Procurement Specialists must also have good analytical skills to properly evaluate inventory needs to purchase the correct number of supplies. They can also use their communication abilities when meeting with and presenting to suppliers and when answering any of the suppliers' questions or addressing their concerns.
