Product Sourcing Jobs

Product sourcing is the process of researching and obtaining goods and services that can be used or resold. In essence, it involves finding, negotiating, and purchasing items or services from a supplier. A Product Sourcing Expert is typically responsible for finding, negotiating and purchasing materials from vendors in order to deliver the goods or services to their clients.

Product sourcing experts do a lot of research in order to find suppliers that can meet the client's expectations and requirements for quality, price, and delivery dates. They are also tasked with finding opportunities to increase product profits as well as making sure products are sourced sustainably and ethically. Furthermore, they need to assess vendors and make sure they meet all needed criteria while managing relationships with multiple vendors.

Product sourcing experts are also expected to create market intelligence reports by researching trends in online and offline channels which helps the client get the most out of their purchasing decisions while having a better understanding of their industry rivals. Additionally, they need to collect and analyze data that helps with price extrapolations as well as understanding customer behavior.
