Jobs with location requirement - I am a European citizen living in the UK for 7 years and I am not able to use up work for UK because you ask for a British passport or a British driving license. I find it extremely discriminatory. I can prove my location in another way but you’re not giving any options. How could you fix the situation?

Hello everyone,

 

I've recently joined UpWork and while trying to verify my UK location, I've realized there are only two official ways to do so: with a British passport or a British driving license. The problem is I have none of these. I have bank statements, work agreements and tenancy agreements. Is there any way that I could verify my location with one of these?

Thank you, much appreciated.

I'm trying to respond to jobs in the UK. I am French. I live in London. I don't drive a car as it's pointless in London. I've been living here for 10 years+, and have the settled status alongside my French passport. How can I apply for jobs in my country if only UK passports or UK driving licences are accepted?
