'warden' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'back in charge getting work unit into shape' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'work' could be 'erg' (an erg is a unit of work done) and 'erg' is present in the answer.
'unit' could be 'ci' (Ci is an example) and 'ci' is located in the answer.

This accounts for all the letters.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
