Born in Bath, Somerset, Max is the son of former Bath Rugby and England player, Steve Ojomoh. He received his education at King Edward's School in Bath.
Max's rugby journey began at the age of six when he joined Bath Rugby. He later moved to Chippenham RFC at the age of nine. At fourteen, he joined the Bath Rugby academy, and in September 2019, he made his debut for the club in a match against Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership Rugby Cup. In March 2021, he made his first league appearance off the bench against London Irish, followed by his maiden European outing against Zebre Parma in the EPCR Challenge Cup.

The 2021/22 season marked Max Ojomoh's breakthrough season at Bath Rugby. Despite his deep connection to the club through his father, he has made a name for himself by making significant strides on the field as an inside centre. Max's playing style is both thrilling and captivating, consistently keeping supporters on the edge of their seats whenever he has the ball. He made his debut for his hometown club in the Premiership Rugby Cup and has worked tirelessly to develop his game and earn further opportunities in the senior squad.
Max's hard work paid off when he made his Gallagher Premiership debut against London Irish and subsequently earned his first European appearance against Zebre. He concluded the season with two impressive 80-minute performances, which caught the attention of the England national team. Max was called up by head coach Eddie Jones to the summer training squad.
His exceptional ball-playing skills and attacking prowess have garnered recognition, and he was voted the Premiership MVP for October by the RPA (Rugby Players' Association).
