Hello, this is kind of an EU question, or possibly in the wrong country forum, but if you were a resident of France (a citizen of a non-EU country but nevertheless had legal residency in France) and wanted to work in Belgium on a short-term contract basis or even a part-time basis, would you need a work permit in Belgium? And would this be the same for actual citizens of a member state? I know there is freedom of workers within the EU but is it the same for non-citizens?
Many thanks!

If you're an EU national, you can work in any country you like within the EU under the freedom of movement statutes. However, if you're a non-EU national on a visa in France, you can work in France only if you have "work papers" (i.e. a titre de séjour that includes work privileges). Legal residency in France does not give you any rights for working outside of France.
Cheers,
Bev
