"What work have you now ?" should also be accepted.

This is quite non standard English to me and my own English isn't exactly going to land me any audio book gigs any time soon. Where are you from out of curiosity?

I think what is your job now sounds good . What work have you now is good English , not common . Sounds to me like like an Irishman or a Scotsman .

I think it's standard "British" English ... like "have got".

I wrote "what work have you got now?" and was rejected.

"To have / have got" do not use the "dummy auxiliary" when they indicates possession.

I agree. A similar sentence I wrote with "have got" was rejected in my case. I never use "do" with "to have" when it indicates possession.
