I have come across this sentence:

1 With this new job, since I've been in charge of the sales department, I've been working long hours and working at the weekend.

Is this sentence grammatically correct? Wouldn't it be better to use the past simple instead?

2 With this new job, since I came to be in charge of the sales department, I've been working long hours and working at the weekend.

Both sentences are correct. While (1) focuses on the position you have held all this time, (2) takes as a point of reference the moment when you were appointed to do that job.
