Cracks in wall next to window

We've had a complete work over on our house about 10 months ago including new windows and some internal plastering and painting - it was a bit of a rush job as we were expecting our first child so I don't think the walls were fully dried out before painting....

Since then, we also had external insulation and render added and after the installers fitted it all, we've had these large cracks by the window about 2mm wide appear and they actually run all the way down to the skirting board

Are these anything to be concerned about and will it just be a case of filling these or will there need to be new plaster put on?
