Live at Bourne End, as a worker (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

bee

'a worker' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'live at bourne end' is the wordplay.
'live' becomes 'be' ('be' can be a synonym of 'live'**).
'at' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'end' indicates one should take the final letters.
The final letter of 'bourne' is 'e'.
'be'+'e'='BEE'

'as' is the link.

(Other definitions for bee that I've seen before include "queen, perhaps" , "Busy person" , "Social insect" , "Social worker possibly" , "In one's bonnet, it's a persistent idea" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
