    in the department or at the department

    In my tenure at the corporate communication department, I looked after the following work(s):

    2).....

    3).....

    a) Should it be at the department or in the department?

    b) Is there any formal word to substitute "look after"?

    I was responsible for the following:

    - xxxxx
    - xxxxx
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
