"Laura is well suited to the role and its an exciting opportunity for her and the football club," GM Football Cameron Joyce said.

"The work she's done since arriving at North last year has been of the highest quality and we are thrilled to have someone of her calibre as part of our club."

Laura will now be responsible for the management of Football Operations, Welfare, Talent Pathways, VFL alignment and Women's academies.

Kane will begin the new role on January 30.
