    but has since found

    Hi,

    http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/since

    - He lost his job five years ago, but has since found other work.

    I cannot understand the function of 'since' in the above sentence. Does it mean 'since then'? Why is it used after 'has'?

    Thanks.

    Yes, that's what it means.

    That's how "since" can be used in such constructs; alternatively, it can go at the end of that sentence.
