Creating a restricted domain admin account

Last Modified: 2017-10-30
We have a temp worker who was hired to work on our help desk (Tier 2), and I need to find the best way to manage this account until he becomes a full-time worker who has passed background checks. I am looking for suggestions or advice on how to give him just enough rights to do his job, and avoid a possible security breach if things don't work out with him. I just don't feel it's a good idea to grant him default domain admin rights until we know he works out.

Thanks in advance
