    Abstract

    For the last number of years, the National University of Ireland Maynooth has run a programme known as ‘SPUR’ (Summer Programme for Undergraduate Researchers). SPUR participants work on research projects relevant to academic units within the university, and gain experience of scholarly research. The programme is usually very competitive, and in Summer 2013 I was fortunate to mentor a very talented undergraduate student, Frances Bell, who collected data for a project on the relationship between recruitment markets and sustainability ‐ oriented management education in Ireland. As part of her work on this project, Frances had utilized a ‘top ten’ listing of online recruitment sites (Fawcett, 2013) and found 62 job postings for positions which had ‘sustainability’ or ‘sustain’ advertised in the Republic of Ireland. The sites which had identified the most ‘hits’ over the six ‐ week time period that she had collected data are listed in the Method section below, and these have been employed as part of this project
