Posh philosopher finds employment (5)


I believe the answer is:


'employment' is the definition.
(I know that employment can be written as usage)

'posh philosopher' is the wordplay.
'posh' becomes 'u' (abbreviation for upper-class - opposite to non-U).
'philosopher' becomes 'sage' (sage can mean a wise person).

'finds' is the link.

(Other definitions for usage that I've seen before include "Tradition - rate of consumption" , "Custom - treatment" , "Convention" , "Silly little thing" , "Habitual custom" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
