rights to execute single sql server2008 job

Have a user - he doesn’t have sysadmin rights, only process admin, doing testing, needs rights to execute a single job. I didn’t want him to have access and rights to other jobs or more rights than needed. He is only a data reader for an associated user database
So, can I grant the user rights to execute a single sql server job? How can i do this

If he's the owner then he can see it without having to be sysadmin:

because he doesn't have enough rights, he cannot see the sql agent and the jobs. the only rights he has is process admin at server level and data reader for a user database.

If user cant see agent there are other ways to start a job - i.e sp_start_job
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186757.aspx

By default, members of the sysadmin fixed server role can execute this stored procedure. Other users must be granted one of the following SQL Server Agent fixed database roles in the msdb database:

SQLAgentUserRole
SQLAgentReaderRole
SQLAgentOperatorRole

yes, but the problem is agentreader role doesnt help starting the job

agentuser role helps to see and start the job when the person has been assigned ownership but still the
job fails with the message "Non-SysAdmins have been denied permission to run
DTS Execution job steps without a proxy account.  The step failed."


agentoperatorrole gives permissions on starting, modifying other jobs

Sorry is hard sometimes to advice without the whole picture/details and I believe that you need to create a proxy account in that case as per documentation "Creating SQL Server Agent Proxies"
