Parliament is recruiting a tourism chief who will be paid up to £74,270 of public money, according to the Evening Standard.
Responsibilities include organising once-weekly tours of the World Heritage site and supervising talks and exhibitions.
Perks include at least 28 days' holiday, interest-free season ticket loan, childcare vouchers and discounted membership of the Parliament gym.
The 75-minute tours of Parliament, which cost £15 for adults and £6 for children, are only available on Saturdays and during the recess.
A Commons spokesman said the holder of the job deserved to earn potentially more than an MP: "This post is in charge of a large team of staff."
However, many people in the Fire Service and NHS work much harder and manage a large team of staff, but don't get nearly as much money.
What a disgusting waste of public money during a recession.
We can't afford benefits for disabled people but we can afford to pay someone almost three times the average wage in London to manage tourism in the Houses of Parliament.
This country needs to get its priorities right. Perhaps the tours should be boycotted in protest at this waste of public money.
