Adzuna also has 34 openings for ice rink supervisors and 50 openings for Christmas tree sellers paying £10-£11 per hour.

MailOnline has contacted Heathrow for comment.

Met Office forecaster Andrew Ward said it was unsurprising the role was highly paid as Heathrow struggles during periods of heavy snow.

He told The Sun: ‘We have wet snow in the UK, with a lot more moisture in it and that’s what causes disruptions.

‘Wet snow is more of a problem as it turns to slush and ice, which is more difficult to clear than dry snow that can be easily blown or swept away.

‘It makes it harder to keep the airport running smooth as there are additional hazards of ice, and aircraft need de-icing.’

It comes as Heathrow begins a new recruitment drive ahead of Christmas, with 600 new frontline roles currently being advertised.

The west London airport is looking for new security officers, engineers and a variety of other roles following the easing of travel restrictions.
