We have a request from our Database Administrator where they wanted us
to grant them the access to submit cron job using the oracle ID. Just
wondering, is there any security issue if we allow oracle ID to be able
to submit cron job? Please advise.

All users have their own crontab file that they can edit and add things to.

crontab -e to edit it

crontab -l to list it's contents

crontab -r to remove it
