Au Pairs in the UK

Just wondering if anyone knew if it's possible for a British person to Au Pair in the UK?

Their is no special significance to the words "au pair", it is a job just like any other.

But a big part of the "package" is that you get free board and lodging in a different culture where you can go out and party from Friday night to Sunday experience something you would not experience by staying at home, so if you take this out of the equation a typical au pair role in the UK is "worth" a lot more to someone from another country than it is to you.
