Hi, Thanks for your question.If you are a British Citizen then you will not need a work permit to work in the UK – it is the right of UK citizens to work in the UK without restriction. I would state to them that you are a British citizen and show them your passport, possibly allowing them to take a copy. They are asking because I suppose they think you are not British and would therefore require a visa which permits you to work. They would face a fine of up to £10k if they were found to be employing a person without valid leave to remain/work so you can understand why they are doing it I suppose but once you show them your passport it will be fine.If this has been useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my time.
