Post Spouse visa application from within UK while being employed in another country

Hello,

I am in the UK on a fiance visa currently. Not been here too long. Flew in for the civil wedding. We recently had our civil wedding and i am in the process of applying for my visa to be changed to a spouse visa.
I am still employed outside of the UK right now. (Did not feel confident to quit my job in this uncertain covid environment while still on a fiance visa).
Given that i still am employed in another country, can i still apply for the spouse visa from within the UK? or do i need to go back to the country of my residence to apply? My husband will be my sponsor for my visa.

Appreciate any input here.

You can apply for the spouse visa from within the UK - it's your husband's income which is taken into account.
