Please advise if there is another group i can assign to an RDP access developer.
They need to start and stop custom services.
The server is NOT using Active Directory. It is a VPS with Windows Server 2012 Std.

Without a domain/workgroup I doubt it if you can achieve any solution.

Even when I make them an Admin they do not have access via the services panel but they can run a batch file "Run As Administrator" and it works.  This is OK by me as the server is only a development server.  They are still restricted from accessing folders protected by the primary admin.

You can try disabling uac, not best practice but may solve your issue.
