English term or phrase: middling-professional class
It is an extract from George Orwell's "Coming up for air"
I could keep my end up in the rather mixed society of a place like Ealing, where the office-employee class overlaps with the middling-professional class.

professionisti di medio livello
Explanation:
middling-professional non ha necessariamente una sfumatura negativa, espressa invece dal termine "mediocre".
Ecco alcuni esempi:
1. [..] for example, the middling professional classes who were the chief architects of the public school system and whose identities, in turn were forged and influences consolidated [...]"
2. "200 are technicians who obtained the title of a middling professional post, over a long period of time, the group always devoting to creating an ideal environment for mankind..."
3. "It is striking, incidentally, that most of those who contributed to the study of the early, English came from the middling professional ranks."
