If you are using sql server 2005…check BOL topic "SQL Server Agent Fixed Database Roles" http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188283.aspx If you are using sql server 2000 then check the TARGETSERVER ROLE in msdb database… MohammedU.

Members of SQLAgentUserRole and SQLAgentReaderRole can only start jobs that they own.
Members of SQLAgentOperatorRole can start all local jobs including those that are owned by other users.
Members of sysadmin can start all local and multiserver jobs.

Thanks everyone for the answer.
