One of the metro’s newest companies is now hiring.

Athene USA will be holding a job fair on Monday.  The insurance company is closing its offices in Topeka, Kansas to shift to the company’s facility in West Des Moines.

A spokesperson for the company said about 225 new jobs will be moving to the metro area as a result.

The job fair will be held from 4 until 7 p.m. at Athene USA’s headquarters at 7700 Mills Civic Parkway.

“So there’s great opportunity for people in various functions to work in a fantastic location and there are some great jobs available,” said Steve Carlson, Athene Director of Communications.

Athene purchased Aviva back in October for $2.6 billion.  After the deal went through, 150 jobs were cut, 90 from the metro.
