English term or phrase:professional and support staff
The largest office is maintained in Chad, where seven **professional and numerous support staff** are working in our Centre de Support en Santé Internationale (CSSI/T) in N’Djaména, Chad, which is a basis for research as well as a local and regional consulting agency.
Explanation: In the USA, this would be understood to be technical people, usually with a college degree or higher (professional staff which might be engineers, doctors, architects or the like) while the support staff are the clerks, office assitants, perhaps even plumbers and electricians, if necessary. Most likely the clerical staff, though.
My take on it from the USA. You might look for "exempt" and "non-exempt" as these are rough divisions into professional and support staff.
