Engineer with wide view (6)


I believe the answer is:


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

'with wide view' is the wordplay.
'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'wide' becomes 'w' (abbreviation e.g. in cricket).
'view' becomes 'angle' (angle is a kind of view).
'w' next to 'angle' is 'WANGLE'.

(Other definitions for wangle that I've seen before include "Obtain craftily" , "Obtain through influence" , "Obtain by being persuasive" , "Manipulate - falsify (a situation etc)" , "Manipulate deviously" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
