Collect the helpdesk users in a global group.
On the server, assign permissions to start, stop, and pause the spooler service either to a "real" local group or to a domain local group, and make the global helpdesk group a member of the local group with the permissions.
To change the permissions, it's easiest to use either a group policy or subinacl.exe.
