Sharepoint - Seperating Access for Sharepoint Administrator

Last Modified: 2020-10-30
We have a Sharepoint 365 site.  We need to designate an individual in our company to be a Sharepoint Administrator; however there are folders/files that this individual should not have access to.  Is there a way to separate these files so the Administrator only has access to her department's folders?  Our Sharepoint was initially setup as a document library, with only two types of permissions - read and read/write.  It will be reconfigured, but not for about 2 months.
