This is on the day to day tasks of looking after a data warehouse.

Any help would be appreciated

Too big a question - I would suggest getting a book on it, but I don't know where you are in your training or what stage the data warehouse is at, so maybe Microsoft's book 70-463 "Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012" would be your best bet.

If you just want bullet points, look at this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa905992(v=sql.80).aspx

A data warehouse (DW) is not more than a very large database so the tasks are basically the same as the tasks you'll perform on a generic database. Big difference is being a very large database it will need more resources so keep a special attention on RAM and storage.
Also a DW have other components (BI and Cubes) so you can't forget about checking them as well. And the processes that are used to feed the DW.
