Outpost is Peter Bedford HA’s contemporary homeware store and gallery in Islington. The shop has been part of North London’s landscape for the last 16 years and has supported hundreds of our tenants and participants into work and meaningful activity

Outpost provides opportunities for tenants and participants to gain retail experience in a real working environment. You can also work towards:

  • An NVQ in Retail Skills (Level 1)
  • A work experience certificate
  • Literacy and Customer Service qualifications

Working in retail can offer many exciting prospects, with  many future possibilities. As well as a social atmosphere to work in, you will learn about the products and what interests customers.
