A successful programme to get young people jobs will be rolled out across 23 of New Zealand's regions.

Last month, a pilot in four areas teamed local businesses with rangatahi left unemployed by Covid-19.

In South Wairarapa, 52 unemployed locals found jobs within the five week pilot period.

Mayor Alex Beijin led the pilot scheme in South Wairarapa.
