Condescend to get a new post round the job centre (5)


I believe the answer is:


'condescend' is the definition.
(I know that condescend can be written as stoop)

'a new post round the job centre' is the wordplay.
'a new' is an anagram indicator.
'round' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'centre' indicates the central letters.
The centre of 'job' is 'o'.
'post' with letters rearranged gives 'stop'.
'stop' going around 'o' is 'STOOP'.

'to get' is the link.

(Other definitions for stoop that I've seen before include "Sink" , "Condescend" , "Bend forward from the waist" , "Bow or bend" , "Bend the body forwards" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
