The only thing you can do is to put a surface box on the conduit box. The
fixing holes in a surface box are set in position that actually fit into
conduit fittings such as these. If you look inside a back box, you should
see the fixing holes can be knocked out in diagonal configurations to make
contact with the diagonal fixing points on the conduit boxes.

Yes, I have surface-mounted boxes currently but have become fed up with the
unsightliness of these and was hoping that someone manufactured a flush
switch to fit the conduit box.
I recall seeing in Woolworths several years ago a flush switch which had a
kind of gripper on each side which fitted into the box and tightening the
mounting screws expanded the gripper on each side to press against the
sides of the conduit box.
I suspect such a fitting would be illegal nowadays. Ah well, I suppose
it's a matter of waiting till the next redecoration and cutting off the
conduit boxes to fit flush switches.
