A what? Please explain.
Edit: I think I got an idea by now. You mean a user not used by a fellow worker but for special tasks? An account that has certain restrictions? If so, please specify what exactly you plan to do with that account.

Managed service accounts were a feature of server 2008R2. Since 2012, there are group managed service accounts. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831782.aspx

Also, for both cases, you can use the local system account.
