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


I believe the answer is:


'condescend' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'a new post round the job-centre' is the wordplay.
'a new' indicates an anagram.
'round' is an insertion indicator.
'centre' indicates the central letters.
The middle letter of 'job' is 'o'.
'post' anagrammed gives 'stop'.
'stop' going around 'o' is 'STOOP'.

'to get' is the link.

(Other definitions for stoop that I've seen before include "Bent posture" , "Bow or bend" , "Sink" , "Crouch" , "Lean forward" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
