Many companies, especially larger organizations with many specific functions, employ contract negotiators. Depending on their company and specific role, the negotiator may have a variety of duties. These professionals typically work with contracts in three categories. In some cases, the contracts help distribute goods or services that the company offers; in others, the contracts involve services or goods the company uses. Finally, the negotiator may work strictly with internal contracts within the organization.
