I am trying to apply for a job which is specific to the location (United Kingdom). I am currently a resident in the UK; however, in order to verify the location, Upwork is asking me "Simply upload an image of your U.K. driving licence or British passport".
Ihave neither driving license nor do I have a British passport. I can provide my council tax bill to prove that I am a resident in the UK. Will this work?
Has anyone else faced a similar situation? Please help.
To verify my location is required a Personal I.D. a Passport or a Driving Licence that confirms it.
Although, I live in the U.K. but I don't have an I.D. or Passport to Confirm that nor a Driving License. I have only bills and statements but the request it's specific to those two methods. Is there any other way?
I understand that this may be a desirable feature for clients who wish to limit bids from UK-only freelancers, and I'm not against it in principle. Personally I don't find it useful at all, as there are only ever 3 or 4 jobs that appear in my UK only feed and they don't change very often. But whatever – this may change given time, and although it seems like a pretty useless feature for freelancers (in my case at least), it doesn't bother me very much to give that option to clients.
However, it's REALLY annoying for freelancers to have the default Find Work feed be set to UK only. Every time I go to search for work I have to click to go to the second tab. The vast majority of my clients come from outside the UK and so I don't foresee a time when I'm likely to only want to see jobs from UK clients. I'd suggest one of the following, in order of preference:
1) Give me an integrated feed as the default containing all jobs relevant to me, with an option to filter to UK only if you must. But please don't make the filtered list the default.
2) Allow some customisation of the Home feed so that individual freelancers can choose which feed they'd like to see as their default.
3) Failing either of the above, I'd actually prefer to unverify my location so that I remove the possibility of seeing UK only jobs. Is this possible? I'm aware this would possibly restrict the jobs I see, but for the moment, that doesn't seem to be a problem for me (i.e., there's still more than enough work without a location requirement). Indeed, many of my clients are from the US which seems to suggest that many clients are also happy to hire freelancers from across the world.
