What do you mean by "file system access"? (Once again, forgive me, I only know wordpress).
It means you need to be able to get to the files via FTP, or some other route (e.g. Windows Explorer if you're running DNN locally).
sorry, this is something you can do in a development environment, but NOT on a production site with a third party. I would never ever allow anyone who is not responsible for the site to access the DNN installation on a production site with FTP or inside the Windows file system.
If an "Upwork guy" has to change the theme (skin), I would give him a copy of the skin (or an install package, if available), let him do the work (and that includes creating an install package), test it in a testing or development environment and install it when everything is fine.
