Am i right to literally translate this as "there is fresh work at me"?

Yes, it’s basically correct, but I’d say there is new work at me would be better. Ùr seems to be more common for new than in Irish (but then, bliain úr for New Year in Irish too).

Nuadh seems to mean more modern, up-to-date, novel with ùr being the default word for new (but also fresh).
