Sunrise Senior Living is opening a new senior living center in Issaquah in April and hosting a job fair Saturday, Feb. 8, to fill some 40 positions.

The job fair is from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Issaquah (1801 12th Ave. NW) and will be looking to hire for positions such as certified nursing assistants, wellness nurses, concierge, and housekeeping.

The living center, when it opens in April will be an expansion of the company’s over 320 communities across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. The Issaquah location will mark Sunrise’s ninth location in Washington state.

People can register for the job fair at www.JoinSunrise.com, but registration is not mandatory. Job fair attendees should bring multiple resumes and prepare for several interviews.

Jared Gruber, regional director of operations at Sunrise, said in a press release that Sunrise is “proud to be opening Sunrise of Issaquah and welcoming compassionate individuals to our Sunrise family.”

“Life at Sunrise is truly unique – there are boundless career growth opportunities, and you end each day knowing you’ve done something good,” Gruber said. “That is a remarkably powerful and rewarding feeling.”

Sunrise offers training for those hired as a certified nursing assistant, 401(k) and various benefits such as tuition reimbursement, low cost gym membership and health, dental and vision coverage.

Sunrise Senior Living also held a job fair at the same times on Feb. 4.
