What application role would work in this case?
The Manager (Base Roles\Employee Managers) doesn't have sufficient permissions for this action.
If the application role Identity Management\Employees\Administrators (permissions group vi_4_PERSONADMIN) has too many permissions, a custom application role can be created (and a permission group).
