SQL Agent runs when account is sysadmin

Hello Experts Exchange
I have a SQL Agent job that runs under a user, when the user has sysadmin rights, but when I remove sysadmin right the job does not run, and has the following error.

Executed as user: TELFORD\SqlAgent. Microsoft (R) SQL Server Execute Package Utility  Version 11.0.5058.0 for 32-bit  Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.

The job runs a SSIS package.

I want to remove sysadmin rights from the user account, what rights do I have to give this user to get the job to work?

Setup and Use a separate service account instead of using an existing user's account.
SQL agent needs to be a sysadmin role.

Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
When you set an user as Sysadmin it will have full access to all databases so when you remove that role for the user you'll need to explicitly give him the permissions that he needs on the database.
In your case he needs at least the SELECT permission on the table 'Master_Selection_Criteria' in database 'BPC_LOOKUPS'. Of course that he might need more permissions since I don't know which objects and operations are used in your SSIS package.
