Default Returning to UK but working for US company

It seems like we are going to repatriate to the UK this summer.

My wife works for a non-profit and they want to keep her and are happy that she work remotely. As far as I see, this is relatively straightforward i.e.

- She would transition from being an employee to a consultant and be paid based upon an agreed monthly fee. Her company creates no taxable presence in the UK
- She would not continue to receive any benefits (health, pension etc) from the company and would not be liable for US taxes
- She would declare foreign earned income to HMRC and be taxed accordingly

Are there any flaws here?

She is a US citizen - how is she not liable for US income taxes?

Ah, mea culpa - I made an assumption rather than ask for missing information.

And she's not a PR, or if she is she intends to abandon her status?
