His active career as a football player began at his hometown's club LePuy Foot 43 Auvergne, where he served until 2003 during which he made appearances for the men's A team. After being the hot prospect player for his team for a certain period of time, Perbet moved to Ligue 2 Clermont Foot where he signed with his first professional contract. This was in the summer break before the 2003/04 season. Already in the first round of the new season Perbet made his first appearance for the club, on 2 August 2003 where his team tied 0–0 at home against FC Rouen. The match saw him entering on the 80th minute to replace the then 27-year-old striker Stephane Samson. His first professional goal occurred on 27 September 2003, where he scored the game-winning goal in the 1–0 home victory over FC Gueugnon. His first season ended with 26 league appearances and 4 goals.
The 2004–2005 season for the team began the season staggering to make good appearances, first ranking 14th place, just 4 points ahead of relegation, and then finished ranked 18th with 39 points in 38 matches and a mere 8 victories. The team however did reach the quarter-finals in both the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France. Perbet's season resulted in not very useful. Although he did make 33 championship appearances and 5 goals, he rarely was used from the start.
Breakthrough at AS Moulins
In the 2005/06 season, he made only two more league appearances for Clermont and then moved to French club AS Moulins in the Championnat National de France (Third Division). Here he became the star of the team quickly. Perbet was used in 33 league matches and scored 23 goals, close to half of the season goals of the team in the 2005/06 season. By season's end he was top scorer of the Championnat National de France 2005/06, along with Jawad El Hajri of Bolougne. Despite the outstanding performance of Perbet, Moulins finished the season 19th and struggled the whole season to avoid relegation to the French fourth division which however occurred due to their final position in the league.
Moulins and Strasbourg
Before the start of the 2006/07 season, Perbet was allowed a free transfer into French second division club Racing Strasbourg. He signed a three-year contract. After a great season in the French third division, Perbet wanted to succeed in the Ligue 2 as well, but this was not the case. In the months of August and September he made seven league appearances but as a substitute. In the 7 league appearances he scored 1 goal. He was allowed to play in the B-team of the club, Racing Strasbourg B, where he made 5 league appearances in the French fourth division, and scored twice. And to think that before his official game debut with Strasbourg, Perbet had scored in a 2–0 victory in a friendly match against Bayern Munich.
Loans to Charleroi and Angers
After only 12 league appearances and 3 goals with Strasbourg A and B in the 2006/07 season, Perbet moved to Sporting Charleroi on loan for the rest of the season. When the Belgian team gave the striker space, he proved to be useful. Perbet scored 6 goals in 13 league appearances. The remaining season at Charleroi was useful to Perbet, as the team arrived fifth place in the Belgian Pro League. He returned after his loan contract had ended to Racing Strasborg, who in the meantime ranked third in the 2006/07 season in the Ligue 2 and was thus promoted to the Ligue 1.
The 2007/08 season began with Perbet going on loan to SCO Angers in mid-July. The contract was a year – long loan with purchase option. Angers had been following Perbet during his time at Charleroi and had been interested in purchasing him for a while. The now 22-year old, had an unsuccessful season with SCO Angers. He made 11 league appearances without scoring a goal, and was also sent to play in the Angers B team (4th French division), where he scored 2 goals in 2 appearances. At the end of the season SCO Angers decides not to purchase him, and thus he returns once more to Racing Strasbourg. Interestingly, in January 2008, Perbet had been associated with a move to Austrian Bundesliga team SK Rapid Wien. However the offer never came through, and Perbet unwillingly remained at Angers. SCO Angers had not liked Perbet's association with Rapid Wien, which is why they preferred not to use him on the starting 11 for the remainder of the season.
After the end of the 2007/08 season, several Belgian clubs, including among others, FC Brussels showed their interest in the youngster. Perbet decided almost immediately to accept the loan contract with AFC Tubize in the Belgian Pro League (first division). Perbet, before accepting Tubize, had meet and spoke about contract terms with FC Brussels president Johan Vermeersch. In league action, the striker came back with 31 league appearances and 12 goals added to his name. Once again Perbet received inquiries from abroad – including from the Ukrainian first division side Metalist Kharkiv. Despite a noticeable 2007/08 season, Perbet's team was not able to avoid relegation to the second division. Before his team's descent and the expiry of the loan agreement, Tubize purchased Jeremy Perbet and offered him a new contract which expired in 2010.
In the summer before the 2009/10 season, Perbet was courted by international clubs. Amongst them were KSV Roeselare in Belgium and Bnei Skhnin FC from Israel. Perbet, however, decided to stay with Tubize, and was grateful they had granted him a new contract. In the 2009/10 season, Perbet made 16 league appearances and scored 11 times. The French Striker resulted as being successful even in the EXQI League (Belgian second division).
In late December 2009 it was confirmed that Sint-Truiden were interested in signing Perbet, and even had a contract ready once his old contract at Tubize would have ended. According to media reports, however, Perbet was in no mood to transfer to Belgian Club Sint-Truiden. When the 2010/11 season was about to begin, the 25-year-old signed a two and a half-year long contract with Belgian club SC Lokeren. The transfer fee was disclosed, but the sum paid to Tubize was estimated to be 350,000 €. Perbet made 12 league appearances with SC Lokeren in the Belgian Pro League scoring 1 goal, before agreeing to a season on loan to RAEC Mons in the Belgian Second Division in January 2011.
Although sustaining a knee injury which caused Pebert to miss some of the 2010–11 season, Perbet was able to make 14 league appearances for RAEC Bergen Mons scoring 14 goals to help the club secure promotion to the Belgian Pro League. RAEC Bergen Mons decided to purchase Perbet permanently in the 2011–12 season after he had performed excellently in the Belgian Second Division during his loan spell. RAEC Bergen Mons got promoted to the Belgian Pro League after winning the final play-off match against Waasland-Beveren 2–1. The 2011–12 season has been Perbet's career best, scoring 22 goals in 29 appearances in the Belgian Pro League and 28 goals in 38 appearances for RAEC Bergen Mons in all competitions.
Loan to Villarreal
On 28 January 2013, Perbet made a loan move from RAEC Bergen Mons to Villarreal C.F.. In an interview with the club, Perbet said "I am delighted to take this step in my career and that a club like Villarreal has noticed me is brilliant. Personally, this a very important opportunity that I took, but it is more than me, and more on a collective level. I've come to help to achieve the objective of promotion, which is the main objective of the club for this season...". Perbet made his debut on 9 February 2013 against SD Ponferradina where Villarreal won 3–0 with Perbet scoring two of the goals.
