indent

Here is my best explanation:

'recess' is the definition.
(I have seen 'Deep recess ' mean 'indent' so perhaps 'recess' could also mean 'indent')

'during study trainee's first' is the wordplay.
'during' becomes 'in' (I've seen this in other clues).
'study' becomes 'den' (term for a study or office).
'trainee's first' becomes 't' (1st letter of 'trainee').
'in'+'den'+'t'='INDENT'
