Does MeFi have any tips or tricks to help me start managing a team that has already 'formed' without a manager?

I am due to start a new job in the next month. I will be managing a production team who work on a wide variety of material including print, web, social media and video.
The whole department is new and my role is the last to be filled due to it going through the first round of interviews without them wanting to employ anyone. The team will have been together for about 3 months by the time I start.
My team (of 6) will be made up of people who already worked at this organisation - having been moved or promoted into these roles - and total newbies.
I have never taken over a team that has already formed and was wondering if MeFi had any top tips or tricks to help me?
