Upstart (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

parvenu

'upstart' is the definition.
(I know that upstart can be written as parvenu)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for parvenu that I've seen before include "One coming" , "Arriviste" , "Johnny-come-lately, upstart" , "Newcomer" , "One newly risen to wealth or power" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian and The Independent.
