Hi,

 

To submit a proposal for a job in London, I need to verify my location. However, the only options given to do so are to upload a Birtish passport or a UK driving's license. While I'm not British and cannot drive, I legally live and work in the country. I have a national insurance number and lots of bills to my name. 

Is there another method to verify my location? 

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

I would like for my ID to be manually verified as well. I am a freelancer based in the UK but neither my passport nor my drivers license are from the UK, so it won't successfully upload them when I try to apply for UK-based jobs.

I await for your response.

Many thanks,

Arianna

Hi please can a moderator help me. 

 

My ID couldn't be authenticated and now my account is on hold. 

 

I can't find anywhere to sort this? The live chat bot said to post a question in here. 

 

Thanks

Hi,

I tried to send a proposal for a job on Friday, but was asked to verify my ID. When I tried to do this and upload an acceptable format of my ID, it wouldn't work. I sent a support ticket and got an email reply to say the issue has been resolved when in actual fact it hasn't. I now cannot send any proposals for work and I am a bit frustrated to put it mildly.

 

It would be great if I could talk to an individual not a bot who does not really understand the nuances of the actual issue. Looking forward to some help.

 

Thank you
