Translation from Hungarian to English #translation

Alex Magocsi

The attached snippet was taken from an 1869 Hungarian Census page and concerns the employment relationship of one of the household residents.
I cannot decipher all the words but see "munka" (work) and "utánil" (after) but I am unable to figure out the letters of the first word.
Can someone tell me what the first word is and then tell me the meaning of the phrase?

Thank you
