Washington Speakers Bureau says of Mrs May: "Sharing lessons from her experiences over a storied career, she encourages listeners to recapture the spirit of common purpose in order to achieve progress across the world."

Mrs May is billed as an 'inspirational' speaker with areas of expertise being trade, Europe, women in leadership, and diplomacy.

She is credited on the site with overseeing 'the largest ever cash boost to the NHS', the Times reported.

All other former living Prime Ministers - John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron - are represented by the agency.

Previous former Prime Ministers have either stood down at the election after they leave Downing Street, or have resigned from the House of Commons prompting a by-election.

However, Mrs May insisted that she would stay on as a representative for her constituents.

She spoke in parliament for the first time since resigning as Prime Minister last week, speaking in a debate about the Grenfell Tower fire.
