A common solution (from printers I've worked with) is to have
a 'drop box'
FTP site for incoming jobs. You should still set it up so
each person has an
account (a server admin would have to create those as
requested) and then
the rights would WRITE but not READ (so they could write to
the folder, but
not see everyone else's folder).
Another option would be to create unique accounts for each
way, it really isn't a web developer's issue...but rather
whoever will end
up being the server administrator.
