Forner UK Prime Minister David Cameron has been offered a job in Kazakhstan as an adviser to the president of the Muslim Union and Central Asian Human Rights Committee, it was reported on Saturday.

The job comes with the title of Sultan, as well as an alleged £36 million-a-year ($47 million) contract, according to The Times newspaper.

“We consider your extensive political experience an asset to be used for the benefit of long and lasting peace in Central Asia,” the group’s press service was quoted as saying in a message to Cameron.

“Such co-operation will help to strengthen economic and political relations between our countries.”

The role isn’t a first for ex-UK prime ministers, as Tony Blair had found success in the Asian country as a highly-paid consultant to President Nursultan Nazarbayev.

To take up the role, Cameron would have to learn the Kazakh language.
