I'm a British citizen, do I need to apply for a permit before I can work in Poland? Do I have to register for residency?

Nope. You'll have to get a NIP (same as UK NI number) - but this is painless.

Do I have to register for residency?

Officially, yes. No consequences if you don't - however, it does make life considerably easier if you intend to stay here.
