Emily Ball

Emily joined the team as a Graduate from Northumbria University with a degree in Sport Development. Emily’s cheerful outlook and determination have seen her promoted to Operations & Planning Supervisor, responsible for the scheduling of all repair work for all tooling refurbishment and repair.



Tadcaster, North Yorkshire


As a student from University of Northumbria, Emily graduated in 2019 with a Diploma of Higher Education in Sport Development BA (Hons). Her time at uni allowed to her to fully embrace all the sports she was passionate about, while taking time to coach and teach them too. Unfortunately, COVID halted much of the sport in the UK and made Emily realise that being on furlough was not for her.

Having left sport behind as a career, Emily joined NTR Ltd bringing with her love of timings, schedules and planning – all critical in the world of sport. With her eye for detail and interest in quality and process, Emily soon understood the dynamics of the NTR workshop. The production flow and knowing how to manipulate the schedule to ensure all customers were covered for urgent repairs, really gave Emily a buzz. Developing relationships in the workshops from the welders through to the QC team, Emily has made the NTR factory her home!

As part of her personal growth plan, Emily studied alongside her job at NTR Ltd to gain a Distinction in Business Administration – level 3.


  • Business Administration – level 3 (Distinction)
  • Forklift certification
  • University of Northumbria Sports Development BA (Hons) 2:1
  • York College Sport Coaching/Development – level 3 
  • Swimming Teacher – level 1 Swimming Coach
  • Tadcaster Grammar – GCSE’s 


Emily loves watching and playing sports and is a real fanatic. Whether it’s martial arts training, swimming, cross-fit or water polo, Emily has tried it all.

With a keen love of travel, Emily has recently returned from a trip to Reykjavik, Iceland where she fell in love with the stark landscapes, the hot springs and local restaurants. We have to wonder where next on her wishlist?

Police Memorial Case Study | NTR Ltd

August 2020 / Sam Wood

Honoured to play a small part in the new Police Memorial

The very nature of Manufacture-to-Print means that we don’t always discover the final application of the components that we produce. That’s why we felt so honoured when we found out that the brass pin assemblies and tie bars that Sam Wood and the team had manufactured, were to be part of something very special.
