    responsible for various aspects of work of the analysis team

    Hi,

    Question:

    Is it sensible to say
    "responsible for various aspects of work"
    ?

    Sentence:
    As a manager at ABC Ltd in the IT department, I am responsible for various aspects of work of the analysis team.
    Example 1 ...
    Example 2 ...

    My opinion:
    I know that it I should say "I am responsible for analysing data, responsible for handling enquiries".
    However, I am not sure whether "responsible for various aspects of work" is correct or not.

    Thanks

    So, the second "the" can be omitted, ie

    various aspects of the work of the analysis team

    No. When you write "various aspects of work ...", the reader thinks you are finished---he hears "work" as a mass noun. As he reads on, he realizes his mistake. The article makes him wait for your description of what work you mean---the work of the team.
