If you’re on a job which involves things like just replacing light fittings and odds and sods on different circuits for the same client, is there a MWC that can cater for more than one set of circuit tests rather than doing separate certs for each circuit?

Yes these exist and I see no problem with using something that is not exactly the model form.
You could always use an EIC for multiple works too. do you currently use any certification software ?

Or you could (tin hat on here) just put a Zs and RCD test results on your invoice. What tests would you carry out otherwise? Save some trees.

Quite a bit more info than that should be recorded if recording anything at all, especially over multiple circuits.
If you wanted to put two tin hats on you could say that the work described in the OP could be classed as maintenance and not require any certification.

At the moment I’m just using the ELECSA system, but interesting as Andy78 has commented above. Clients seem to like the idea of some sort of certificate probably because the question about electrical work seems to come up more regularly now with house sales,

My software has a 5 circuit MWC. That's Tysoft easycert but you'd need to fork out for the full package.
If you look up electraform it's a web based cert system with no subscriptions, just pay £1 per cert and they have a multi circuit MWC.

You can do whatever floats their boat; BS7671 suggests using a Minor Works for replacing a luminaire. Your estate agent might like that documentation, Mrs Miggins I think wouldn't care a monkies.

Funnily enough, I got called out by one of those guys on a Sunday afternoon, in their country house. He drilled through a cable putting up a shelf. Socket was right below the shelf :D
