A unit of UnitedHealth Group said it plans to fill roughly 500 jobs in the Phoenix area over the next 60 days, with an employment fair scheduled for Tuesday in Ahwatukee Foothills.

Connextions, a business unit that helps insurers enroll, retain and provide services to members, already has started to hire “engagement specialists,” who will help seniors and others understand their Medicare and prescription-drug benefits so they can evaluate, enroll in and effectively use their plans.

Connextions also will hire managers and fill other positions, The Arizona Republic reports.

The job fair, also hosted by Phoenix, will be 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Connextions’ facility, 4809 E. Thistle Landing, Suite 110. The facility is west of Interstate 10, between Ray and Chandler roads.
