I have recently created an Upwork account and I would like to apply for UK-only jobs. I have been living in the UK for almost 6 months now, and I even have documents to prove it (bank statements, for example). However, I am an EU national, and I only have my national ID card, passport and drving license. I possess pre-settled status (limited leave to enter) the UK, but neither a British passport nor driving license. Would someone be able to suggest a way for me to verify my location?
Thank you in advance!
I'm trying to apply for a job which requires the freelancer to be in the UK. The Upwork platform sytem to prove location is to upload a British passport and driving licence. I don't have either of those things because I'm Irish... and I am in the UK. I'm also perfectly qualified to do this job.
This way of proving location (or indeed suitability for this job) is crazy. Even if I had a British passport, does that mean I would be suitable?
I am in fact super qualified for this job because I'm an expert on the topic.
I just joined upwork and now I'm stuck at location verification.
I live in the UK but I'm not from here. I'm an immigrant. Why can't there be an option list for other international residents? It feels like Upwork is very short minded and difficult toward skilled worker migrants....
I am also currently based in the UK with a residence permit. Unfortunately, I cannot verify my location since there is no option for the residence permits. Can anyone help me to verify my location in an alternative way since I have neither a British passport nor a driving licence.
