User set as admin cannot create Projects


I've created a new user in Jira, assigned him to the administrators group. He can create users and invite users, but he can't create a New project.

Can someone please explain how to assign someone permissions to "create a new project"

Please do not point me to this help document:

I've followed everything, but they still can't create projects.
