Permission to change account record type

I have a user who needs to be able to change Account Record Types. I have created a permission set for them that gives them edit access to the object and to the record types they can change the account to. However, because the Account Record Type field is read only on the page layout their profile is assigned to, they are still unable to edit the record type. 

How can I give them access to change the record type without having to change the page layout?

Hi Claire,

If you have assigned them a permission set, then look for a permission called "Edit read only fields" this will allow the user to edit fields that are set to read only

Hi Claire,

Depending on your appitite for page layout maintenance, you could give them a different profile instead of a permisison set and have a 2nd page layout which is assigned to the profile you create/switch this person to.

That's probably more overhead than you want though.
