    Internet service provider Slingshot is recruiting new support staff for Maori Language Week - which begins tomorrow

    Internet service provider Slingshot is recruiting new support staff for Maori Language Week - which begins tomorrow


    It's wanting to hire people so customer support can be offered in Te Reo Maori.

    The company has also translated its website and key help articles into Maori this week, as part of a broader drive to incorporate Te Reo into its business.

    Slingshot chief executive Taryn Hamilton says Maori is one of three official languages of New Zealand, and it makes sense that customers should be able to speak to help staff in Te Reo if they choose to.

    The fluent Te Reo technical representatives will offer support by phone and email by the end of November.
