Working in Europe - immigration rules for UK nationals post-Brexit

This resource, commissioned by Universities UK and searchable by country, includes immigration requirements for short-term work placements (up to one year), students wishing to do an undergraduate or postgraduate degree and permits for post-study work.

Use the GOV UK's "Living In" - Guides Europe 

Visas are now required for UK citizens who want to work in Europe. Start by researching the visa requirements and application process using the Government's guides for the country you are interested in.
