Located on the shores of the beautiful Rock River – and an easy drive from Chicago, the Quad Cities, and more – our community offers the perfect mix of small-town, know-your-neighbors living with ready access to the cultural and entertainment options of the big city. All with an affordable cost of living and excellent schools, healthcare, and job opportunities.
Our location is the best of both worlds - the earning potential and comfortable work/life balance of a small town but with the amenities of Chicago just two hours away. We offer lucrative compensation and robust benefits packages. There is very limited competition in our service area, and the array of activities in Sterling is unsurpassed for a town of its size. Sterling sits on the Rock River with its great boating, hunting, and fishing; offers the Woodlawn Arts Academy for music, performing, and visual arts lessons and classes; and maintains an active park district with a gymnastics center, indoor pool, indoor track and turf field, 4 indoor tennis courts, 8,000+ square foot fitness center, and much more. Public and private schooling options are available.
