Office365 Restricted Admin to OU

We are migrating to Office365 next month linking our AD to Azure.

Due to the time difference where IT support is located the manager of one of our offices in another country would like to be able to change passwords and possibly create/disable users accounts for staff in their own office/department.

Can we enable the manager to administer their office/department staff accounts if we keep them in a separate OU in Active Directory to the rest of the company so the manager cannot admin the rest of the company?

Thank you David

Will we be able to delegate any other control to the manager beyond the resetting of passwords restricted to objects in the OU?
