How do I automatically add a space in specific positions within UK postcodes for consistent formatting?

I am looking at how to ensure that there is a space in the postcodes I want to use as sometimes when they are entered in there is no space and this can cause an error when processing a workflow output so I want to use ZAP to ensure ensure that the output of all post codes irrespective if a space is added or not then the output always has a space.

An example is LS249TK or LS24 9TK.

I know that going from the end of the postcode the 4th character from the right should always be a space.

Any help would be appreciated.
