A successful purchase manager needs to have a wide range of skills to be able to successfully complete the duties of the role. A typical purchase manager is expected to be good at planning and budgeting annual spend, having knowledge of various clauses for executing commercial contracts with suppliers and service providers, while keeping the risk minimal and drafting an all-weather pricing agreement.
A purchase manager will also continuously search for potential vendors and bring them on-board. This cycle is usually covered in RFX processes and sometimes with the use of advanced tools like reverse E-auction.
This purchase manager test evaluates candidates’ abilities to engage in effective purchase policy-making decisions, manage risk, especially with regards to contracts, onboard and manage vendors, and engage in effective pricing analysis and strategies.
This screening test will help you identify well-rounded candidates who are ready to step into the role of purchase manager.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.
The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.
For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.
I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.
For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
