I don't believe there is an out of the box method available. You can do it by manipulating the start and stop times and activating / de-activating it. But it is of course a little clunky.

There is a tool on codeplex available that "kind of" lets you do this from Central Administration:

The "kind of" is in that for one-off schedules of jobs, it creates copies of the timer job.
