Could be a bad earth to the engine, try jump lead from the negative terminal on battery to the engine block, or could just be a knackered starter motor, ideally need to check if there's voltage going to the solenoid, whilst trying to start it

If you get stuck pm me, it's a possibility the battery also has a bad cell, try a multimeter across the terminals and report back on the voltage

Is there an earth lead from the gearbox to the body, check it`s connected and not corroded.

Happen to a friends car, he had welding done, so they disconnected the battery leads. They forgot about the second earth strap when they reconnected. Good luck.

It sounds like it is your starter motor, are your lights, horn, ext working if so you have good battery connections,you have already had jump leads on so it's not the battery.
Try getting someone to push start or tow start you if it starts that will pretty much confirm it is the starter.
