Leaving the job, being very shy (8)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'leaving the job' is the first definition.

'very shy' is the second definition.

'being' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for retiring that I've seen before include "Shy, avoiding company" , "going up the stairs?" , "Shunning contact with others" , "Shy - finishing job" , "of unobtrusive aspect" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
