Send USD to non USA bank (no conversion)

Hello,
I am UK based and have a UK (GBP) bank. When i send funds from upwork to my bank i want upwork to simply send me it all as USD. I do not want upwork or their banking partners to do the conversion. My bank is really good for this, they always do the conversion extremely close to the midmarket rate and it would result in me earning several hundred dollars more per year. Is this possible?
Thanks

No it isn't. You may want to consider a US Dollar account with your bank and then do wire transfer (for $ 30) or alternative withdrawal methods - both PayPal and Payoneer offer far better exchange rates.
