Parkinson’s chooses IRIS Networx ATS

Parkinson’s is a UK-based charity working with people affected by Parkinson's disease. With nationwide teams, Parkinson’s delivers guidance, help and support to families and communities about living with Parkinsons.


From the start, a large challenge for Parkinson’s was the need to move quickly. Parkinson’s need for a new ATS system stemmed from wanting to have a fully automated process, from application to hire, audited and in one place, but delivery was of high importance for a 6 post-implementation deadline. Keen to ensure the move not only added greater automation, they also required flexibility to manage videos within their adverts for engagement and information purposes.


With a new design development in the pipeline, we worked with Parkinson’s to quickly and efficiently turn around their bespoke built ATS. This ensured they had a seamless transition from their previous platform and also integrated with their existing Cascade HR Software.

Our newly designed advert suite offers a high level of functionality that not only allows clients to include videos in their adverts but also additional sections such as Google Maps, image carousels, ‘meet the team’ sections and more. This enabled Parkinson’s to shape highly engaging and interactive adverts that clearly demonstrate key points and benefits. This works especially well for Parkinson’s to showcase their brand values.

The entire process from start to finish has been seamless with Parkinson’s. With limited downtime and new extensive functionality, IRIS Networx have partnered with Parkinson’s to successfully progress with their aim to become more “digitally competent” and keep up to date with competitors, offering the best candidate experience possible.

Client Comment

“Year on year the charity has been moving to become more digitally competent and diverse and we needed a solution to grow with our new needs. The IRIS Networx solution offered an impressive array of functionality from video interviewing to authorisation processes. The integration with Cascade further enables us to connect our employee life cycle from end-to-end removing a large proportion of data administration from the process.

We set ourselves a very ambitious time frame of just around six weeks. We were extremely impressed and grateful for how the team at IRIS Networx was able to fit key dates and milestones around our tight schedule. This really set a benchmark for how well the project would run. The implementation process was seamless and the support we received from our project manager was second to none. It made the whole process painless.

Our Project Manager was a real expert in their field, easy to work with and understanding of our needs and demands was so refreshing. They not only had inside-out knowledge of the system itself, but a real grasp on the recruitment process as a whole and the skill and know-how to guide us in the right direction.”
