Hi,

I have permanent residency in the UK but no British passport nor driving licence. Could you please assist me in verifying my localisation ?

Thank you,

Kind regards,

Hi Bojan, 

I don't have a British passport or UK driving license, but I am living in the UK. How can I complete the verification process? Could you please help me with this topic. 

Thank you!

"New clients in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland), will now be able to post jobs targeted to freelancers in the U.K."

Um, no. I would suggest Upwork immediately review its entire interface and promotional materials for this feature for any suggestion that the Republic of Ireland is part of the United Kingdom. In the present example:

"New clients in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland) and in the Republic of Ireland will now be able to post jobs targeted to freelancers in those countries."

Hi Lena,

 

Is there any chance of getting this in the EU too? 

 

Thanks!

Hi Maria,

 

We do plan to offer this option to clients in other countries in the future, likely adding one country at a time. We’ll be sure to keep the Community updated!

Does this mean all in the UK get (that infernal, ugly, invasive, lack of privacy) map in the middle of their profiles as well?

 

 

BTW, relying on Preston (or anyone's) quote in a thread somewhere to explain a change is sooooooooo wrong.  It only makes good business sense for a moderator to create a new and stand-alone post to inform users (customers) when a major change such as this has been made.

 The map is already there. The sooner it goes away again, the better!
